Twenty-five palmaris longus muscles were transplanted into the forearm (orthotopic autografts) or into the face (heterotopic autografts) in 15 Rhesus monkeys. These muscles were transplanted with or without anastomosis to a motor nerve. No significant difference was observed long-term between the grafts done with or without prior denervation of the muscle. The forearm muscle grafts without neurorrhaphies formed a static, fibrous sling which did not contract. The forearm autografts with… Expand
Neuroanastomosis of orthotopically transplanted palmaris longus muscles
TLDR
Monkey PML autografts with neuroanastomosis were similar in structure and function to cat extensor digitorum longus autografteds that had not had neuroanASTomosis, and had slower times to peak tension and less absolute tension, but similar tension per square centimeter of muscle fiber cross‐sectional area.

Characteristics of cat skeletal muscles grafted with intact nerves or with anastomosed nerves
TLDR
The greater P0 of nerve-intact compared with standard and nerve-anastomosed grafts supported the hypothesis that the degree of reinnervation is a factor that limits graft development. Expand
Survival of myogenic cells in freely grafted rat rectus femoris and extensor digitorum longus muscles.
TLDR
The results show that myogenic cells survive two to four hr in the ischemic centers of the large rectus femoris grafts; after longer post-grafting intervals, rat myotubes did not arise in central zone minces, and it is concluded that these regenerating muscle fibers are derived from precursor cells located outside of the isChemic zone.

Muscle transplantation for reconstruction of a smile after facial paralysis past, present, and future
TLDR
A historical review of the numerous procedures which have led to the development of the one‐stage mini‐gracilis muscle transplantation is illustrated, and relevant differences between the classical two‐stage procedure using a cross‐facial nerve graft and the recently advocated one-stage procedure are addressed. Expand
Skeletal Muscle Transplantation in Cats With and Without Nerve Repair
TLDR
The regeneration of skeletal muscle fibers following free, whole muscle auto-transplantation has been well documented in rats and in dogs, and the time course of regeneration and the degree to which control values are restored have been described. Expand
Functional Recovery Induced by Satellite Cell Grafts in Irreversibly Injured Muscles
TLDR
It is shown that myogenic cell grafts replace degenerated my ofibers and form functional myofibers in rat extensor digitorum longus EDL muscle, and functional improvement observed, between 2 wk and 3 mo after cell grafting, correlated with the development, differentiation, and maturation of the regenerated myofiberers rather than with an increase in the number of regenerations. Expand
Skeletal muscle transplantation
TLDR
In the research setting, muscle transplantation represents a convenient tool for producing the degeneration and regeneration of muscle fibers and whole muscle physiology can be readily performed on the regenerates. Expand

TLDR
The major factors limiting the ability of skeletal muscle to regenerate after trauma or disease are a viable population of satellite cells, reinnervation, and revascularization. Expand
Revascularization of skeletal muscle transplanted into the hamster cheek pouch: intravital and light microscopy.
TLDR
It is concluded that blood vessels in muscle grafts in the cheek pouch survive transplantation, and that circulation in grafts is reestablished by the anastomoses of blood vessel sprouts from the graft with the blood vessels of the host. Expand
Recovery of skeletal muscle after laceration and repair.
TLDR
Recovery after laceration and repair of the extensor digitorum longus muscle of rabbits revealed that the distal segment initially isolated from the nerve supply showed histologic changes of fiber atrophy and size variability, increased fibrosis, and nuclear centralization suggestive of denervation.
