INTRODUCTION When a nerve section with a significant gap occurs, it is necessary to use a prosthesis to suture it. To date an autologous nerve segment graft appears to be the best treatment; but it has several important disadvantages. Our goal is to study the effectiveness of an isogenic acellular nerve prosthesis comparing a simple suture with tubulisation. MATERIAL AND METHOD Four groups of Wistar rats were used. The animals in Group 0 served as donors of nerve segments to graft. Group 1… CONTINUE READING
