BACKGROUND Adult mammal sensory axons avulsed through spinal dorsal root traction injuries, especially of the brachial plexus or cauda equina, cannot normally regenerate through axonal outgrowth from the DRG into the spinal cord, thus causing clinical conditions that require neuronal regeneration for sensory recovery and for which no successful treatment has yet been reported. METHODS To evaluate the sensory recovery of the forelimb after transection of their left cervical dorsal and ventral… CONTINUE READING
