BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE The standard clinical technique for repairing peripheral nerve gaps is the use of autologous sensory nerve grafts. The present study tested whether a collagen tube filled with autologous platelet-rich fibrin could induce sensory and motor recovery across a 12-cm nerve gap repaired 3.25 years post trauma, and reduce or eliminate neuropathic pain. CLINICAL PRESENTATION Two years postrepair, good ring and small finger motor function had developed that could generate 1… CONTINUE READING
