BACKGROUND Triidothyronine(T3) plays a critical role in the physiological function of virtually all tissues. In the present study the effect of T3 on nerve regeneration was studied. MATERIALS AND METHODS The right sciatic nerve of 20 male rabbits was axonotomised. Ten of the animals were used as controls while the others received T3. Seven days later, all were sacrificed. Both sciatic nerves were excised and each axonotomised nerve was divided into three equal segments: I (proximal to the… CONTINUE READING
