Abstract: PURPOSE: To compare muscle reinnervation in one and two surgical stages using end-to-side neurorrhaphy (ESN) without donor nerve injury. METHODS: The experiment was performed on four groups of 20 rats. Group 1 (G1), one stage, received the graft which was sutured to the tibial nerve, with ESN, and its free stump was sutured end-to-end to the distal stump of the sectioned peroneal nerve (PN), all in the same operation. In Group 2 (G2), two stages, the nerve graft was sutured to the tibial nerve, with ESN. Two m… Show more

“…This is an end-to-side (terminolateral) neurorrhaphy, first described in 1901, 23 which has been used clinically in some cases. 3,13,28,38 Thus, nerves grow into the distal stump with evidence, primarily from animal studies, of reinnervation of denervated targets 2,5,6,22,26,40,41 and some evidence of better sensory than motor nerve regeneration. 36,44 This is a surgical option when a proximal nerve stump is not available, as is frequently the case after root avulsion injuries.…”
