The concept that end-to-side nerve coaptation can induce collateral sprouting was recently reintroduced by Viterbo. However, other authors have reported conflicting results with this technique of nerve repair. The current paper studies some of the variables affecting axonal regeneration following end-to-side repair. The first part of the study compares the rate of axonal regeneration following end-to-side neurorrhaphy with nerve grafts using epineurial versus perineurial sutures. The rat… CONTINUE READING
