  • trauma
  • In a subsequent step, newly developed nerve guides could be tested in more unpredictable and challenging clinical peripheral nerve lesions (e.g., following trauma) which have reduced comparability due to the different nature of the injuries (e.g., site of injury and length of nerve gap). (hindawi.com)
  • Like other tissues in the body, nerves are susceptible to disease or trauma. (azcentral.com)
  • In a 2009 issue of Orthopaedics and Trauma, physicians remarked that nerve compression may result from calf muscle tears as well as muscle overgrowth. (azcentral.com)
  • Paresthesia can result from trauma to the nerves serving the affected area. (healthtap.com)
  • flap
  • Proximally based sural adipose-cutaneous/scar flap in elimination of ulcerous scar soft-tissue defect over the achilles tendon and posterior heel region: a new approach. (semanticscholar.org)
  • neurovascular
  • Wide excision of the neurovascular bundle and interposition nerve grafting of the cavernous nerves when there is suspected extracapsular extension at the posterolateral prostatic margin are logical applications of improved understanding of pelvic neuroanatomy. (mysciencework.com)
  • defects
  • Therefore, it should be possible to generate large numbers of Schwann cells from diseased nerves to study defects in cell function or from normal nerves to study the effects of Schwann cell grafts on neuronal regeneration. (umich.edu)
  • fiber density
  • At follow-up, T2DM showed a reduction in nerve conduction, amplitude, myelinated fiber density, unmyelinated axon diameter, and autophagy structures in myelinated axons. (lu.se)
  • Changes in these parameters correlate with anatomical evidence of decreased large and small myelinated fiber densities (MFDs) in the sural nerve ( 4 , 5 ) and the epidermis (intraepidermal nerve fiber density) ( 6 ). (diabetesjournals.org)
  • baseline
  • One baseline measurement and five post-irradiation recordings (2-min interval each) were performed of the nerve conduction velocity (NCV) and negative peak latency (NPL). (chiroeco.com)
  • Patients and Methods: Sural nerve physiology and ultrastructural morphology were studied at baseline and 11 years later in subjects with normal glucose tolerance (NGT), IGT, and T2DM. (lu.se)
  • Results: Subjects with T2DM had significantly lower sural nerve amplitude compared to subjects with NGT and IGT at baseline. (lu.se)
  • patients
  • HCV-RNA In Sural Nerve From Hcv Infected Patients With Peripheral. (ingentaconnect.com)
  • Although the side effects of sural nerve harvest are minor, the ability to predict preoperatively which patients will benefit from such grafts would reduce the number of failures. (mysciencework.com)
  • The technique for sural nerve grafting described herein gives urologists an additional tool to improve patients' quality of life without compromising the chances of success in treating prostate cancer. (mysciencework.com)
  • Traumatic
  • Chronic paresthesia or intermittent paresthesia over a long period of time is generally a sign of a neurological disease or traumatic nerve damage (e.g. dental implant ). (healthtap.com)
  • plastic surgeon
  • A section of the sural nerve was harvested by a plastic surgeon and grafted in place during the same surgical session. (issm.info)
  • The success of the authors' interposition nerve-grafting project has resulted, in part, from the use of a multidisciplinary team approach that includes experienced oncologic surgeons and a plastic surgeon with extensive microsurgical and nerve-grafting experience. (mysciencework.com)
  • characteristics
  • Based on these results, it can be concluded that LED irradiation, applied to intact skin at the described irradiation parameters, produces an immediate and localized effect upon conduction characteristics in underlying nerves. (chiroeco.com)
  • Function
  • Long-term prevention and intervention studies in the diabetic rat have revealed preventional and therapeutic effects on peripheral nerve function and structural abnormalities ( 12 , 13 , 16 ), as well as on endoneurial blood flow ( 15 ). (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Neuropraxia is defined as a temporary loss of function of the nerve. (healthtap.com)
  • Is a condition inwhich the radial nerve ceases to function. (healthtap.com)
  • axon
  • The axon is a long nerve fiber that carries electrical signals away from the cell body, while the short, multiple projections named dendrites carry incoming signals. (azcentral.com)
  • compression
  • This may result from nerve damage or vascular compression resulting arterial insuffiency, swelling and even blood clots. (healthtap.com)
