Nerve repair is usually accomplished by direct suture when the two stumps can be approximated without tension. In the presence of a nerve defect, the placement of an autologous nerve graft is the current gold standard for nerve restoration. However, over the last 20 years, an increasing number of research articles reported on the use of non-nervous tubes (tubulization) for repairing nerve defects. The clinical employment of tubes (both biological and synthetic) as an alternative to autogenous… CONTINUE READING
