Omental graft improves functional recovery of transected peripheral nerve.

Abstract

The omentum has several properties that are advantageous for neuronal sprouting and direction. We have therefore analyzed functional recovery following transection of rat sciatic nerve using omental graft to bridge the nerve defect. In group 1, a 25-30-mm nerve defect was produced and bridged with omental graft, whereas in group 2, an end-to-end repair was… (More)
