Both soleus muscles of rats were tenotomized 5-10 days after deafferentation of one side which was achieved by section of the 4th and 5th lumbar dorsal roots. When examined 2 weeks after tenotomy, all experimental muscles showed central degenerative changes in slow fatigue-resistant fibers. These changes were absent from muscles that had been only deafferented. Experimental deafferented muscles examined 6 weeks after tenotomy showed a substantial recovery which was comparable to that seen in… CONTINUE READING
