Neurotization--reinnervation of muscle by direct nerve implantation--has been the subject of several reports. The underlying neurobiology, however, has not been adequately studied. The use of a combined silver-acetylcholinesterase stain was used in this study to identify reinnervated motor endplates and to quantify motor endplates reinnervated by the neurotization process. This study examined the effect of distance between nerve implantation and native motor endplate zone on the formation of… CONTINUE READING
