BACKGROUND Restoration of nerve continuity and effective maintenance of coaptation are considered fundamental principles of end-to-end peripheral nerve repair. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the influence of the number of stitches on axonal regeneration and collagen production after neurorrhaphy. METHODS Thirty male Wistar rats were equally divided into 3 groups and were all operated on with the right sciatic nerve exposed. In 2 groups, the nerve was sectioned and repaired by means of 3 (group B) or… CONTINUE READING
