Peripheral nerve repair requires comprehensive evaluation of functional outcomes of nerve regeneration; however, autonomic nerve function is seldom evaluated probably due to lack of suitable quantitative methods. This study sought to determine whether autonomic functional recovery could be reflected by cold-induced vasodilation (CIVD) within target skin territory, as monitored by laser Doppler perfusion imaging (LDPI). Rats with sciatic nerve defect injury received autologous nerve grafting… CONTINUE READING
