Cloned cells in which this DNA alteration is successful are then injected into mouse EMBRYOS to produce chimeric mice. The chimeric mice are then bred to yield a strain in which all the cells of the mouse contain the disrupted gene. Knockout mice are used as EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS for diseases (DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL) and to clarify the functions of the genes.

Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.

An autosomal dominant inherited disorder (with a high frequency of spontaneous mutations) that features developmental changes in the nervous system, muscles, bones, and skin, most notably in tissue derived from the embryonic NEURAL CREST. Multiple hyperpigmented skin lesions and subcutaneous tumors are the hallmark of this disease. Peripheral and central nervous system neoplasms occur frequently, especially OPTIC NERVE GLIOMA and NEUROFIBROSARCOMA. NF1 is caused by mutations which inactivate the NF1 gene (GENES, NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1) on chromosome 17q. The incidence of learning disabilities is also elevated in this condition.

The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

A family of highly acidic calcium-binding proteins found in large concentration in the brain and believed to be glial in origin. They are also found in other organs in the body. They have in common the EF-hand motif (EF HAND MOTIFS) found on a number of calcium binding proteins. The name of this family derives from the property of being soluble in a 100% saturated ammonium sulfate solution.

Gabapentin suppresses ectopic nerve discharges and reverses allodynia in neuropathic rats. (1/437)

Repetitive ectopic discharges from injured afferent nerves play an important role in initiation and maintenance of neuropathic pain. Gabapentin is effective for treatment of neuropathic pain but the sites and mechanisms of its antinociceptive actions remain uncertain. In the present study, we tested a hypothesis that therapeutic doses of gabapentin suppress ectopic afferent discharge activity generated from injured peripheral nerves. Mechanical allodynia, induced by partial ligation of the sciatic nerve in rats, was determined by application of von Frey filaments to the hindpaw. Single-unit afferent nerve activity was recorded proximal to the ligated sciatic nerve site. Intravenous gabapentin, in a range of 30 to 90 mg/kg, significantly attenuated allodynia in nerve-injured rats. Furthermore, gabapentin, in the same therapeutic dose range, dose-dependently inhibited the ectopic discharge activity of 15 injured sciatic afferent nerve fibers through an action on impulse generation. However, the conduction velocity and responses of 12 normal afferent fibers to mechanical stimulation were not affected by gabapentin. Therefore, this study provides electrophysiological evidence that gabapentin is capable of suppressing the ectopic discharge activity from injured peripheral nerves. This action may contribute, at least in part, to the antiallodynic effect of gabapentin on neuropathic pain.  (+info)

The novel analgesic compound OT-7100 (5-n-butyl-7-(3,4,5-trimethoxybenzoylamino)pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimid ine) attenuates mechanical nociceptive responses in animal models of acute and peripheral neuropathic hyperalgesia. (2/437)

We investigated the effects of OT-7100, a novel analgesic compound (5-n-butyl-7-(3,4,5-trimethoxybenzoylamino)pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidi ne), on prostaglandin E2 biosynthesis in vitro, acute hyperalgesia induced by yeast and substance P in rats and hyperalgesia in rats with a chronic constriction injury to the sciatic nerve (Bennett model), which is a model for peripheral neuropathic pain. OT-7100 did not inhibit prostaglandin E2 biosynthesis at 10(-8)-10(-4) M. Single oral doses of 3 and 10 mg/kg OT-7100 were effective on the hyperalgesia induced by yeast. Single oral doses of 0.1, 0.3, 1 and 3 mg/kg OT-7100 were effective on the hyperalgesia induced by substance P in which indomethacin had no effect. Repeated oral administration of OT-7100 (10 and 30 mg/kg) was effective in normalizing the mechanical nociceptive threshold in the injured paw without affecting the nociceptive threshold in the uninjured paw in the Bennett model. Indomethacin had no effect in this model. While amitriptyline (10 and 30 mg/kg) and clonazepam (3 and 10 mg/kg) significantly normalized the nociceptive threshold in the injured paw, they also increased the nociceptive threshold in the uninjured paw. These results suggest that OT-7100 is a new type of analgesic with the effect of normalizing the nociceptive threshold in peripheral neuropathic hyperalgesia.  (+info)

Nerve injury associated with anesthesia: a closed claims analysis. (3/437)

BACKGROUND: Nerve injury associated with anesthesia is a significant source of morbidity for patients and liability for anesthesiologists. To identify recurrent and emerging patterns of injury we analyzed the current American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) Closed Claims Project Database and performed an in-depth analysis of claims for nerve injury that were entered into the database since the authors' initial report of the subject. METHODS: The ASA Closed Claims Database is a standardized collection of case summaries derived from the closed claims files of professional liability insurance companies. Claims for nerve injury that were not included in the authors' 1990 report were reviewed in-depth. RESULTS: Six hundred seventy (16% of 4,183) claims were for anesthesia-related nerve injury. The most frequent sites of injury were the ulnar nerve (28%), brachial plexus (20%), lumbosacral nerve root (16%), and spinal cord (13%). Ulnar nerve (85%) injuries were more likely to have occurred in association with general anesthesia, whereas spinal cord (58%) and lumbosacral nerve root (92%) injuries were more likely to occur with regional techniques. Ulnar nerve injury occurred predominately in men (75%) and was also more apt to have a delayed onset of symptoms (62%) than other nerve injuries. Spinal cord injuries were the leading cause of claims for nerve injury that occurred in the 1990s. CONCLUSION: New strategies for prevention of nerve damage cannot be recommended at this time because the mechanism for most injuries, particularly those of the ulnar nerve, is not apparent.  (+info)

Incidence and importance of lower extremity nerve lesions after infrainguinal vascular surgical interventions. (4/437)

OBJECTIVES: To determine the incidence of peripheral nerve lesions after arterial vascular surgery of the lower extremity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 436 patients who underwent peripheral vascular surgery from January 1992 until December 1996 underwent a detailed postoperative neurological examination. RESULTS: 147 patients underwent profundaplasty, 140 above-knee femoropopliteal bypasses, 106 below-knee femoropopliteal bypasses and 56 femorotibial bypasses. There were 182 women and 254 men. Peripheral nerve lesions were observed in 11 patients (4%) after primary operations. 166 patients underwent reoperations (38%) and 55 of these developed nerve lesions (33%). CONCLUSIONS: Reoperation carries an 8-fold increased risk of nerve lesions compared with patients undergoing primary surgery. Detailed explanation of the risk of peripheral nerve lesions before vascular surgery of the lower limb is advisable.  (+info)

Knee pain and the infrapatellar branch of the saphenous nerve. (5/437)

Pain over the front of the knee is common after surgery or trauma but often a definite diagnosis is difficult to make. Over the past year we have seen five cases in which the pain could be ascribed to damage to a branch of the infrapatellar branch of the saphenous nerve. Two were subsequent to trauma and three to surgical procedures. In all five cases surgical exploration gave symptomatic relief. Eight cadaveric knees were prosected to explore further the anatomy of this nerve in relation to the injuries. Injury to one of these branches should be considered in cases of persistent anterior, anteromedial or anterolateral knee pain or neurological symptoms following surgery or trauma.  (+info)

A comparison of the potential role of the tetrodotoxin-insensitive sodium channels, PN3/SNS and NaN/SNS2, in rat models of chronic pain. (6/437)

Alterations in sodium channel expression and function have been suggested as a key molecular event underlying the abnormal processing of pain after peripheral nerve or tissue injury. Although the relative contribution of individual sodium channel subtypes to this process is unclear, the biophysical properties of the tetrodotoxin-resistant current, mediated, at least in part, by the sodium channel PN3 (SNS), suggests that it may play a specialized, pathophysiological role in the sustained, repetitive firing of the peripheral neuron after injury. Moreover, this hypothesis is supported by evidence demonstrating that selective "knock-down" of PN3 protein in the dorsal root ganglion with specific antisense oligodeoxynucleotides prevents hyperalgesia and allodynia caused by either chronic nerve or tissue injury. In contrast, knock-down of NaN/SNS2 protein, a sodium channel that may be a second possible candidate for the tetrodotoxin-resistant current, appears to have no effect on nerve injury-induced behavioral responses. These data suggest that relief from chronic inflammatory or neuropathic pain might be achieved by selective blockade or inhibition of PN3 expression. In light of the restricted distribution of PN3 to sensory neurons, such an approach might offer effective pain relief without a significant side-effect liability.  (+info)

The incidence of nerve injury in anterior dislocation of the shoulder and its influence on functional recovery. A prospective clinical and EMG study. (7/437)

Opinion varies as to the incidence of nerve lesions in anterior dislocation of the shoulder after low-velocity trauma. Most studies are retrospective or do not use EMG. We have investigated the incidence and the clinical consequences of nerve lesions in a prospective study by clinical and electrophysiological examination. Axonal loss was seen in 48% of 77 patients. The axillary nerve was most frequently involved (42%). Although recovery as judged by EMG and muscle strength was almost complete, function of the shoulder was significantly impaired in patients with lesions of the axillary and suprascapular nerves. Unfavourable prognostic factors are increasing age and the presence of a haematoma. It is not necessary to carry out EMG routinely; an adequate programme of physiotherapy is important. In patients with a severe paresis, EMG is essential after three weeks.  (+info)

Safety of the limited open technique of bone-transfixing threaded-pin placement for external fixation of distal radial fractures: a cadaver study. (8/437)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the safety of threaded-pin placement for fixation of distal radial fractures using a limited open approach. DESIGN: A cadaver study. METHODS: Four-millimetre Schanz threaded pins were inserted into the radius and 3-mm screw pins into the second metacarpal of 20 cadaver arms. Each threaded pin was inserted in the dorsoradial oblique plane through a limited open, 5- to 10-mm longitudinal incision. Open exploration of the threaded-pin sites was then carried out. OUTCOME MEASURES: Injury to nerves, muscles and tendons and the proximity of these structures to the threaded pins. RESULTS: There were no injuries to the extensor tendons, superficial radial or lateral antebrachial nerves of the forearm, or to the soft tissues overlying the metacarpal. The lateral antebrachial nerve was the closest nerve to the radial pins and a branch of the superficial radial nerve was closest to the metacarpal pins. The superficial radial nerve was not close to the radial pins. CONCLUSION: Limited open threaded-pin fixation of distal radial fractures in the dorsolateral plane appears to be safe.  (+info)

Peripheral nerve injury is a worldwide clinical issue that impacts patients quality of life and causes huge society and economic burden. Injured peripheral nerves are able to regenerate by themselves. However, for severe peripheral nerve injury, the regenerative abilities are very limited and the regenerative effects are very poor. A better understanding of the mechanisms following peripheral nerve injury will benefit its clinical treatment. In this study, we systematically explored the dynamic changes of mRNAs and long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in the injured sciatic nerve segments after nerve crush, identified significantly involved Gene ontology (GO) terms and Kyoto Enrichment of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) pathways, and innovatively analyzed the correlation of differentially expressed mRNAs and lncRNAs. After the clustering of co-expressed mRNAs and lncRNAs, we performed functional analysis, selected GO term

There are currently no therapeutic agents that are clinically available to enhance the regenerative process. Following surgical repair, axons often must regenerate long distances to reach and reinnervate distal targets. Progressive atrophy of denervated muscle and Schwann cells (SCs) prior to reinnervation contributes to poor outcomes. Growth hormone (GH)-based therapies have the potential to accelerate axonal regeneration while at the same time limiting atrophy of muscle and the distal regenerative pathway ...

Purpose Magnetic resonance neurography (MRN) with diffuse tensor imaging (DTI) allows precise peripheral nerve anatomy with a detailed assessment of fiber tracts. Additional use of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) in these studies permits exquisite anatomic detail of the peripheral nerve fiber tracts. MRN-DTI is rarely applied following traumatic peripheral nerve injury. We are unaware of any studies that use MRN-DTI to evaluate the nerve injuries after surgical repair. Here, we characterize surgically repaired peripheral nerves in patients with post-operative functional recovery with MRN-DTI imaging and correlate with pre- and post surgical exam and electrophysiological (EP) findings. Materials & Methods Among available case records, we identified patients with traumatic peripheral nerve injury who underwent 3 Tesla MRN at our institution. Preoperative DTI was performed with 28 directions, and tractography was performed by placing seed points along the peripheral nerve proximal and distal to the ...
Neuropathic pain is a debilitating, chronic condition with a significant unmet need for effective treatment options. Recent studies have demonstrated that in addition to neurons, non-neuronal cells such as microglia contribute to the initiation and maintenance of allodynia in rodent models of neuropathic pain. The Ca2+- activated K+channel, KCa3.1 is critical for the activation of immune cells, including the CNS-resident microglia. In order to evaluate the role of KCa3.1 in the maintenance of mechanical allodynia following peripheral nerve injury, we used senicapoc, a stable and highly potent KCa3.1 inhibitor. In primary cultured microglia, senicapoc inhibited microglial nitric oxide and IL-1β release. In vivo, senicapoc showed high CNS penetrance and when administered to rats with peripheral nerve injury, it significantly reversed tactile allodynia similar to the standard of care, gabapentin. In contrast to gabapentin, senicapoc achieved efficacy without any overt impact on locomotor activity. ...
Peripheral nerve injuries may result in loss of motor function, sensory function, or both. [1, 2] Such injuries may occur as a result of trauma (blunt or penetrating) or acute compression.. Paul of Aegina (625-690) was the first to describe approximation of the nerve ends with wound closure. Hueter (1871, 1873) introduced the concept of primary epineurial nerve suture, and Nelaton described secondary nerve repair in 1864. Even at an early time, the idea of decreasing tension on the nerve suture was important.. In 1882, Mikulicz described sutures that reduced tension, and Loebke described bone shortening to decrease nerve tension in 1884. In 1876, Albert described grafting nerve gaps. A great deal of information regarding the evaluation and treatment of traumatic nerve injuries came with the experience of treating wartime injuries.. The future in peripheral nerve injuries lies in maximizing motor and sensory recovery after nerve injury. Strategies to maintain the neuromuscular junction are ...
Physical agents, or therapeutic modalities, represent a spectrum of adjunctive therapies used to complement or supplement other interventions, such as exercise, joint or tissue mobilization, strengthening, or stretching. Collectively, physical agents and the interventions they supplement comprise the more comprehensive intervention plan. Advances in understanding of the biophysical effects of physical agents have spurred their continued use in rehabilitation.1-6 Although injured peripheral nerves have demonstrated the ability to regenerate, physical agents impart specific and selective responses to mediate tissue healing that have led practitioners to select physical agents for peripheral nerve injury (PNI) intervention.7 ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Peripheral nerve injury triggers central sprouting of myelinated afferents. AU - Woolf, Clifford J.. AU - Shortland, Peter. AU - Coggeshall, Richard E.. PY - 1992/1/2. Y1 - 1992/1/2. N2 - THE central terminals of primary afferent neurons are topographically highly ordered in the spinal cord1. Peripheral receptor sensitivity is reflected by dorsal horn laminar location: low-threshold mechanoreceptors terminate in laminae III and IV (refs 2, 3) and high-threshold nociceptors in laminae I, II and V (refs 4, 5). Unmyelinated C fibres, most of which are nociceptors6, terminate predominantly in lamina II (refs 5, 7). There is therefore an anatomical framework for the transfer of specific inputs to localized subsets of dorsal horn neurons. This specificity must contribute to the relationship between a low-intensity stimulus and an innocuous sensation and a noxious stimulus and pain. We now show that after peripheral nerve injury the central terminals of axotomized myelinated afferents, ...

Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) have been shown to have therapeutic potential in a variety of neurological disorders, including acute traumatic injury. The objective of this study was to assess the neuroprotective and proregenerative potential of omega-3 PUFAs in PNI. We investigated this in mice that express the fat-1 gene encoding for omega-3 fatty acid desaturase, which leads to an increase in endogenous omega-3 PUFAs and a concomitant decrease ...
My body was positioned on my left side and I was told I would be repositioned after anesthesia with a roll forward towards my stomach with my face facing left and my left shoulder to the rear of the table. My HC pain is on the left side of my head. There seems to be a lot of literature about problems with perioperative and operative peripheral nerve injury - making this a known issue when dealing with unconscious or semiconscious people. My head would have probably been positioned with the left side down and my left shoulder to the rear of the table. I know there were issues with a bad allergic reaction during surgery which might have caused additional issues with positioning due to the emergency nature of the reaction. Could this be the cause? A peripheral nerve injury to the left occipital region of my head/neck? It makes more sense than just magically getting a headache that wont go away post surgery ...
Examination of Peripheral Nerve Injuries: An Anatomical Approach. item An updated guide to diagnosing peripheral nerve injuries. Read More.
Peripheral nerve injuries represent a major cause of morbidity and disability worldwide. In addition to the economic burden on the national level, peripheral nerve injuries impose substantial costs on society in terms of long-term disability, reduced quality of life, and pain. It has been estimated that peripheral nerve injuries affect 2.8% of all trauma patients, many of whom acquire life-long disability. The annual incidence of peripheral nerve injuries in developed countries has been reported as 13 to 23 out of 100,000 persons. Recovery following severe peripheral nerve injury is often dismal, despite the inherent capability for axonal regeneration. Autologous nerve grafts are considered the gold standard treatment in cases of nerve defect, although often not providing satisfactory results. Moreover, autologous nerve donor may cause related neurological morbidity at the donor site, including possible neuroma formation. The use of nerve guidance channels (tubes), sutured in between the ...

Neuregulin1 (NRG1) is a growth factor playing a pivotal role in peripheral nerve development through the activation of the transmembrane co-receptors ErbB2-ErbB3. Soluble NRG1 isoforms, mainly secreted by Schwann cells, are strongly and transiently up-regulated after acute peripheral nerve injury, thus suggesting that they play a crucial role also in the response to nerve damage. Here we show that in the rat experimental model of the peripheral demyelinating neuropathy Charcot-Marie-Tooth 1A (CMT1A) the expression of the different NRG1 isoforms (soluble, type α and β, type a and b) is strongly up-regulated, as well as the expression of NRG1 co-receptors ErbB2-ErbB3, thus showing that CMT1A nerves have a gene expression pattern highly reminiscent of injured nerves ...
NEURO AND ORTHO : Neurology encompasses all aspects of medicine and surgery, but is closer to Orthopaedic Surgery than many other specialties. Both neurological deficits and bone disorders lead to locomotor system abnormalities, joint complications and limb problems. The main neurological conditions that require the attention of an orthopaedic surgeon are disorders that affect the lower motor neurones. The most common disorders in this group include neuromuscular disorders and traumatic peripheral nerve lesions. Upper motor neurone disorders such as cerebral palsy and stroke are also frequently seen and discussed, as are chronic conditions such as poliomyelitis. The management of these neurological problems is often coordinated in the neurology clinic, and this group, probably more than any other, requires a multidisciplinary team approach. Diagnostic approaches, management, rehabilitation and Orthopaedic treatment of these conditions, with the exception of the peripheral nerve injuries, which ...

After peripheral nerve injuries patients lose and do not recover the stretch reflex which leads to altered locomotor function. The focus of this thesis is to investigate the structural integrity of the central connection between Ia afferents and alpha motoneurons that mediate the stretch reflex. The overall hypothesis is that the density and distribution of Ia synapses on motoneurons is altered after peripheral nerve injuries. Analysis of Ia afferent-motoneuron contacts, revealed by vesicular glutamate transporter 1 (VGLUT1) immunoreactivity, on the soma and dendritic arbor of motoneurons after peripheral nerve injuries revealed major reorganizations in the distribution and density of Ia synapses. Synaptic stripping of Ia afferent synapses occurred on the soma and proximal dendrites and appeared to be permanent even after reinnervation; in contrast, VGLUT1 synapses on distal dendrites were unchanged. In conclusion, after peripheral nerve injuries motoneurons are contacted by fewer Ia synapses and they

This review aims to summarize various ways these injuries are classified in light of decades of research on peripheral ...
Implantable devices offer convenient, long-acting, and reversible contraception. Injury to the peripheral nerves and blood vessels have been reported as rare complications of implantation and extraction. We present a case of ulnar nerve injury in a 21-year-old woman from attempted in-office removal of a deeply implanted Nexplanon® device. The injury resulted in an ulnar nerve palsy requiring surgical exploration, neuroma excision, and sural nerve cable grafting. In-office attempts to remove contraceptive implants that are deep or have migrated can cause iatrogenic nerve injury. Devices that are non-palpable, deep, or migrated should be imaged before formal surgical exploration and removal. Any patient with neurologic symptoms after placement or after attempted removal requires prompt diagnosis and referral to a peripheral nerve surgeon.

Peripheral nerve injuries can be classified in two different ways. Neurotmesis is classified under the Seddon system which is defined by three grades of nerve injury. The mildest grade is referred to as neurapraxia and is characterized by a reduction or complete blockage of conduction across a segment of nerve while axonal continuity is maintained and nerve conduction is preserved.[1] These injuries are almost always reversed and a recovery takes place within days or weeks. The second classification of the Seddon system is referred to as axonotmesis which is a more severe case of peripheral nerve injury. Axonotmesis is classified by an interruption of the axons, but a preservation of the surrounding connective tissues around the axon.[1] These injuries can heal themselves at about 1mm/day, therefore resulting in recovery to be possible but at a slower rate than neurapraxia.[5] The last and most severe case of peripheral nerve injury is known as neurotmesis, which in most cases cannot be ...
Neuropathic pain is one of the highly debilitating chronic pain conditions, for which, currently, there is no therapeutic treatment. In order to reveal the underlying mechanism for neuropathic pain, various animal models have been established (Burma et al., 2016). This protocol describes how to prepare spinal nerve injury model (Kim and Chung, 1992; Rigaud et al., 2008; Masuda et al., 2016), one of the most frequently-used and highly reproducible models in which multiple alterations occur both in the peripheral and central nervous system.
Neuropathic pain following peripheral nerve injury is associated with hyperexcitability in damaged myelinated sensory axons, which begins to normalise over time. We investigated the composition and distribution of shaker-type-potassium channels (Kv1 channels) within the nodal complex of myelinated axons following injury. At the neuroma that forms after damage, expression of Kv1.1 and 1.2 (normally localised to the juxtaparanode) was markedly decreased. In contrast Kv1.4 and 1.6, which were hardly detectable in the naïve state, showed increased expression within juxtaparanodes and paranodes following injury, both in rats and humans. Within the dorsal root (a site remote from injury) we noted a redistribution of Kv1-channels towards the paranode. Blockade of Kv1 channels with α-DTX after injury reinstated hyperexcitability of A-fibre axons and enhanced mechanosensitivity. Changes in the molecular composition and distribution of axonal Kv1 channels, therefore represents a protective mechanism to ...
Synthetic neural scaffolds hold promise to eventually replace nerve autografts for tissue repair following peripheral nerve injury. Despite substantial evidence for the influence of scaffold geometry and dimensions on the rate of axonal growth, systematic evaluation of these parameters remains a challenge due to limitations in materials processing. We have employed fiber drawing to engineer a wide spectrum of polymer-based neural scaffolds with varied geometries and core sizes. Using isolated whole dorsal root ganglia as an invitro model system we have identified key features enhancing nerve growth within these fiber scaffolds. Our approach enabled straightforward integration of microscopic topography at the scale of nerve fascicles within the scaffold cores, which led to accelerated Schwann cell migration, as well as neurite growth and alignment. Our findings indicate that fiber drawing provides a scalable and versatile strategy for producing nerve guidance channels capable of controlling ...
PhD Candidate in Bioengineering: Hasenwinkel Lab. My research focuses on developing novel natural polymeric biomaterials to target axonal regeneration following a nervous system injury by utilizing a phenomenon called stretch growth. Peripheral nerve severance is one of the most common outcomes in a peripheral nerve injury. We have developed a crosslinked hyaluronic acid based hydrogel network that shrinks on a timescale relevant for axonal stretching. The ultimate application of such a biomaterial would be in a large gap peripheral nerve injury model to act as an active micromotor pulling axonal ends closer at the outset, and then behave as a passive bridge once the shrinking ceases, to guide them across and form functional re-innervations.. ...

The present study demonstrates the following new findings: (1) L5 SNL induced the activation of SFKs including Src, Lck, and Lyn in spinal microglia; (2) PP2 alleviated the nerve injury-induced mechanical hypersensitivity, but not heat and cold hypersensitivity, and prevented the activation of ERK, but not p38 MAPK, in spinal microglia; (3) nerve injury did not increase SFK phosphorylation in the uninjured L4 DRG, and PP2 did not block nerve injury-induced increase in TRPV1 and TRPA1 expression in the L4 DRG.. There is accumulating evidence supporting a role for activated microglia in the pathogenesis of nerve injury-induced pain hypersensitivity. For example, in the spinal dorsal horn, the ATP receptor P2X4 is selectively expressed in activated microglia and contributes to mechanical hypersensitivity after peripheral nerve injury (Tsuda et al., 2003). Furthermore, the chemokine receptor CCR2 is also expressed in spinal microglia, and CCR2-deficient mice do not display mechanical ...

UCLA REBAR Lab Background: Traumatic peripheral nerve injuries can result in lifelong disability. Primary nerve repair is used for short nerve defects. Autologous nerve can be used in longer defects but creates donor site morbidity. Nerve conduits lack an aligned internal scaffold to support and guide axonal regeneration. Peptide amphiphiles (PA) can self-assemble into aligned nanofibers and promote peripheral nerve regeneration in vivo. Bioactive epitopes IKVAV (Ile-Lys-Val-Ala-Val) and RGDS (Arg-Gly-Asp-Ser) can be incorporated into PA nanofibers and can promote cell adhesion, growth, and migration. There are no studies to date that examine the ability of PA nanofibers to support the regeneration of injured nerves that supply the musculoskeletal system. In this preliminary study, we investigate the viability of rat Schwann cells after incorporation into PA gels.. Methods: PA nanofibers were synthesized by Stupp et al. PAs were aqueously dissolved, and rat Schwann cells (cell line RT4-D6P2T) ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Imaging of peripheral nerve lesions. AU - Fahr, L. M.. AU - Sauser, Donald. PY - 1988. Y1 - 1988. N2 - The imaging of peripheral nerve lesions remains limited to the radiographic demonstration of secondary skeletal lesions in birth trauma, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, neuropathic arthropathy, leprosy, and congenital indifference to pain. Nerve root avulsions can be imaged directly and the newer imaging modalities now allow delineation of lesions that previously could not be studied using conventional radiography. The ability of ultrasound, CT, and MRI to differentiate soft tissue structures makes it possible, in many instances, to study the primary abnormality in trauma, nerve entrapment syndromes, and tumors. With fractures, the possibility of trauma to adjacent nerves can only be inferred on the radiographs, while the role that peripheral nerve injury plays remains controversial in other entities, such as amputation with replantation. Imaging of peripheral nerve lesions ...
Peripheral nerve injury (PNI) and recent advances in nerve reconstruction (such as neurotization with nerve transfers) have improved outcomes for patients suffering peripheral nerve trauma. The purpose of this paper is to bridge the gap between the electromyographer/clinical neurophysiologist and the peripheral nerve surgeon. Whereas the preceding literature focuses on either the basic science behind nerve injury and reconstruction, or the surgical options and algorithms, this paper demonstrates how electromyography is not just a decision tool when deciding whether to operate but is also essential to all phases of PNI management including surgery and rehabilitation. The recent advances in the reconstruction and rehabilitation of PNI is demonstrated using case examples to assist the electromyographer to understand modern surgical techniques and the unique demands they ask from electrodiagnostic testing. ...
Methyl-CpG-binding protein 2 (MeCP2), a protein with affinity for methylated cytosines, is crucial for neuronal development and function. MeCP2 regulates gene expression through activation, repression and chromatin remodeling. Mutations in MeCP2 cause Rett syndrome, and these patients display impaired nociception. We observed an increase in MeCP2 expression in mouse dorsal root ganglia (DRG) after peripheral nerve injury. The functional implication of increased MeCP2 is largely unknown. To identify regions of the genome bound by MeCP2 in the DRG and the changes induced by nerve injury, a chromatin immunoprecipitation of MeCP2 followed by sequencing (ChIP-seq) was performed 4 weeks after spared nerve injury (SNI). While the number of binding sites across the genome remained similar in the SNI model and sham control, SNI induced the redistribution of MeCP2 to transcriptionally relevant regions. To determine how differential binding of MeCP2 can affect gene expression in the DRG, we investigated mmu-miR
Clinical trial for Peripheral Nerve Discontinuities , Comparison of Processed Nerve Allograft and Collagen Nerve Cuffs for Peripheral Nerve Repair
Clinically, injuries affecting the spinal cord or peripheral nerves can leave those affected with severe disability and, at present, there are limited options for treatment. Peripheral nerve injury with a significant gap between the proximal and distal stumps is currently treated with autologous nerve grafting but this is limited by availability of donor nerve and has associated morbidities. In contrast, injuries to the spinal cord lead to an inhibitory environment caused by the glial cells and thereby, limit potential axonal regeneration. This thesis investigates the effects of human adipose derived stem cells (ASC) on regeneration after peripheral nerve and spinal cord injury in adult rats.. Human ASC expressed various neurotrophic molecules and growth factor stimulation of the cells in vitro resulted in increased secretion of BDNF, GDNF, VEGF-A and angiopoietin-1 proteins. Stimulated ASC also showed an enhanced ability to induce capillary-like tube formation in an in vitro angiogenesis assay. ...

In current war trauma, 20-30 of all extremity injuries and 80 of penetrating injuries being associated with peripheral nerve damage, typically involve large segmental nerve deficits. Standard repair uses autologous nerve graft, secured by suture. Outcomes are unsatisfactory, affecting quality of life and return to active duty. We have investigated a sutureless, light-activated technology for sealing nerve grafts to produce an immediate seal that optimizes the regenerating nerve environment. Our studies have shown that biocompatible chemical crosslinking of human amnion considerably strengthens and protects it from biodegradation in vivo that compromises their function as nerve wrap sealants. Rodent studies of segmental nerve deficit repair using isograft show the best performing wrap fixation method to be sutureless photochemical tissue bonding with the crosslinked amnion wrap. Autograft is often unavailable in wounded warriors, due to extensive tissue damage and amputation and, importantly, we also
Based on the research on small gap bridging peripheral nerve injury in SD rats, we propose to investigate the possibility of bridging peripheral nerve injury with small gap using a de-acetyl chitin conduit in primates. The median nerves of 8 rhesus monkeys were cut at 2 cm above the elbow; the right sides were subjected to small gap (2 mm) bridging to repair the nerve with chitin conduit (conduit inner diameter 4 mm; length 10 mm); the left sides were subjected to traditionary epineurium suture. The electrophysiology analysis was conducted after the 3rd month and 6th month, respectively. The adhesions condition of biological conduit was only a little after the 15 3rd month; the conduit can remain cast contour; vessels can be seen on the conduit 16 surface and nerve intumescentia was not obvious. The adhesion and intumescentia condition can display better biocompatibilities than traditional suture methods. The motor nerve conduction velocity was only 1/2 of the control group. Although the motor ...
Complete regeneration is usually very difficult following peripheral nerve damage, though microsurgical techniques have vastly increased the success rate of surgery to repair the injured nerve.
The present study demonstrates that sciatic nerve injury induces a rapid production and release of IL-1β and TNF and causes infiltration of neutrophils and proinflammatory M1 monocytes/macrophages into the distal stump. Mice lacking both IL-1R1 and TNFR1 had reduced neutrophil and M1 macrophage influx and reduced nociceptive hypersensitivity compared with wild-type littermates after injury. However, recovery of sciatic nerve function was impaired in IL-1β-, TNF-, and IL-1β/TNF-ko mice. In addition, we found that neutrophil depletion, a strategy that alleviates neuropathic pain after sciatic nerve ligation, does not affect axonal regeneration and recovery of sciatic nerve function. Together, these results indicate that therapeutic approaches aimed at blocking neutrophil entry are likely to be more beneficial than neutralizing proinflammatory cytokines such as IL-1 and TNF in the treatment of neuropathic pain.. Activation of the innate immune response orchestrates a complex, tightly regulated ...
Neuropathic pain that occurs after peripheral nerve injury depends on the hyperexcitability of neurons in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord. Spinal microglia stimulated by ATP contribute to tactile allodynia, a highly debilitating symptom of pain induced by nerve injury. Signalling between microglia and neurons is therefore an essential link in neuropathic pain transmission, but how this signalling occurs is unknown. Here we show that ATP-stimulated microglia cause a depolarizing shift in the anion reversal potential (E(anion)) in spinal lamina I neurons. This shift inverts the polarity of currents activated by GABA (gamma-amino butyric acid), as has been shown to occur after peripheral nerve injury. Applying brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) mimics the alteration in E(anion). Blocking signalling between BDNF and the receptor TrkB reverses the allodynia and the E(anion) shift that follows both nerve injury and administration of ATP-stimulated microglia. ATP stimulation evokes the release ...

Entubulating devices to repair peripheral nerve injuries are limited in their effectiveness particularly for critical gap injuries. Current clinically used nerve guidance conduits are often simple tubes, far stiffer than that of the native tissue. This study assesses the use of poly(glycerol sebacate methacrylate) (PGSm), a photocurable formulation of the soft biodegradable material, PGS, for peripheral nerve repair. The material was synthesized, the degradation rate and mechanical properties of material were assessed and nerve guidance conduits were structured via stereolithography. In vitro cell studies confirmed PGSm as a supporting substrate for both neuronal and glial cell growth. Ex vivo studies highlight the ability of the cells from a dissociated dorsal root ganglion to grow out and align along the internal topographical grooves of printed nerve guide conduits. In vivo results in a mouse common fibular nerve injury model show regeneration of axons through the PGSm conduit into the distal ...
Pre-injury control data were collected on two separate days before the nerve injury surgery was performed. Post-injury data were collected 1-month post-surgery during the muscle paralytic stage and at 14 months post-surgery during the muscle self-reinnervated stage. The self-reinnervated stage data reported here reflect the 14-month post-injury stage for all but one cat,which did not complete the 14-month collection. Instead, 9-month self-reinnervated stage data were successfully collected and are reported for this individual. During all data collection trials, the cats walked on our treadmill at 0.8 m s-1 until a steady gait was observed. Three-dimensional (3-D) marker positions on the left hindlimb were recorded at 125 Hz for 16 s with a two-camera motion capture system (Peak Performance Technologies, Denver, CO, USA) and saved to a computer for later analysis. Animals were allowed to rest for at least 2-5 min between the two to four trials collected for each day of collection. A typical 16-s ...
Robust RIP immunoreactivity was present in Remak bundles in mixed nerves and in sympathetic ganglia and grey rami. Following peripheral nerve injury, RIP immunoreactivity was redistributed diffusely throughout de-differentiating Schwann cell cytoplasm. In uninjured rats, low levels of RIP immunoreactivity were detectable in satellite cells surrounding dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons and in terminal Schwann cells at neuromuscular junctions. PMID: ...
Objectives: Peripheral nerve repairs can have a variable outcome depending on several factors. Neuroma in continuity at the repair site may limit functional recovery and is frequently associated with localised pain and sensitivity to mechanical stimulation. Extraneural scar may constrict the repair site, impeding axonal regeneration and resulting in adhesions to the nerve repair bed, reducing nerve glide and causing neurostenalgia. This study looked at the outcomes of using a segment of vein to ensheathe peripheral nerve repair sites in twenty patients to measure efficacy with validated functional outcomes and complications. Methods: This was a retrospective review of twenty cases performed in our unit between 2011 and 2015. Thirteen cases of vein ensheathing were performed to protect primary neurorrhaphy following traumatic lacerations without significant nerve loss. Seven cases were performed in secondary nerve repairs, of which five followed excision of a neuroma and two following neurolysis ...

High-resolution sonography has a growing role in both the diagnosis and management of traumatic and atraumatic peripheral nerve pathology. Sonography not only affords a cost-effective and time-efficient approach to interrogating long segments of peripheral nerves but also possesses unique advantages in terms of its dynamic, real-time nature with few clinical contraindications and limitations. In this review, we will initially discuss imaging techniques and characteristics of normal neural sonohistology, then address specific features and pitfalls pertaining to the spectrum of post-traumatic peripheral nerve injury. Additionally, we will highlight the more common sonographic applications in the clinical work-up of patients presenting with symptoms of dynamic neural impingement and entrapment. Finally, illustrative and clinical features of the more frequently encountered peripheral neural neoplastic pathologies will be addressed.

Neuropathic pain is a difficult to treat disorder arising from central or peripheral nervous system lesions. The etiology of neuropathic pain consists of several overlapping pathways converging into an exaggerated pain state with symptoms such as allodynia and hyperalgesia. One of these pathways involves activation of spinal cord microglia and astrocytes, which drive and maintain the inflammatory response following the lesion. These cells are a potential target for drugs for neuropathic pain relief. In this current study, we investigated the dose-effect relationship of the tissue protective peptide ARA 290, derived from the tertiary structure of erythropoietin, on allodynia and concurrent spinal cord microglia and astrocytes. Following a spared nerve injury in rats, vehicle or ARA290 (administered in either one of 4 doses: 3, 10, 30 and 60 μg/kg) was administered on days 1, 3, 6, 8 and 10. ARA290 exerted a dose-response effect by significantly reducing mechanical allodynia up to 20 weeks when compared

Your peripheral nerves link your brain and spinal cord to the other parts of your body, such as your muscles and skin. Peripheral nerves are fragile and easily damaged. A nerve injury can interfere with your brains ability to communicate with your muscles and organs.. If you feel tingling or numbness in your leg, arm, shoulder or hand, you may have injured one or more nerves when you had an accident or broke a bone. You may also experience numbness or tingling if a nerve is being compressed due to factors such as a narrow passageway, tumor or other diseases.. Its important to get medical care for a peripheral nerve injury as soon as possible because nerve tissue can be repaired. Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent complications and permanent injury. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Mapping sensory nerve communications between peripheral nerve territories. AU - Ladak, Adil. AU - Tubbs, R. Shane. AU - Spinner, Robert J.. PY - 2014. Y1 - 2014. N2 - The human cutaneous sensory map has been a work in progress over the past century, depicting sensory territories supplied by both the spinal and cranial nerves. Two critical discoveries, which shaped our understanding of cutaneous innervation, were sensory dermatome overlap between contiguous spinal levels and axial lines across areas where no sensory overlap exists. These concepts define current dermatome maps. We wondered whether the overlap between contiguous sensory territories was even tighter: if neural communications were present in the peripheral nerve territories consistently connecting contiguous spinal levels? A literature search using peer-reviewed articles and established anatomy texts was performed aimed at identifying the presence of communications between sensory nerves in peripheral nerve ...
Symptomatic neuroma may develop after a nerve dissection following any trauma to a peripheral nerve, whether accidental or planned (i.e. surgery). Neuroma-induced neuropathic pain and morbidity seriously affect the patients daily life and socioeconomic functioning. The incidence of symptomatic neuromas after peripheral nerve injury is estimated to be 3-5%, however certain surgeries (e.g. autograft procedures, amputations) may have up to a 30% incidence rate. There are several surgical procedures possible to treat symptomatic end-neuromas, but none are considered gold standard for both treatment and prevention. The most common procedure is surgical removal of the neuroma and surrounding scar tissue, and placing the proximal stump into an area subjected to minimal mechanical stimulation.. ...
Traumatic injuries to the spinal cord (SCI) and peripheral nerve (PNI) affect several thousand people worldwide every year. At present, there is no effective treatment for SCI and despite continuous improvements in microsurgical reconstructive techniques for PNI, many patients are still left with permanent, devastating neurological dysfunction. This thesis investigates the effects of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) derived from adipose (ASC) and dental (DSC) tissue and chitosan/microRNA-124 polyplex particles on regeneration after spinal cord and peripheral nerve injury in adult rats. Dental stem cells were obtained from apical papilla, dental pulp, and periodontal ligament. ASC and DSC expressed MSC surface markers (CD73, CD90, CD105 and CD146) and various neurotrophic molecules including BDNF, GDNF, NGF, VEGF-A and angiopoietin-1. Growth factor stimulation of the stem cells resulted in increased secretion of these proteins. Both ASC and DSC supported in vitro neurite outgrowth and in contrast to ...
In this study, we show that D. melanogaster can enter a neuropathic pain-like state after injury. By combining behavioral assessment of neuropathic allodynia with genetic and electrophysiological approaches, we performed a systematic molecular dissection of this phenomenon from first principles. We identified a novel neuropathic cascade emanating from the injured peripheral neuron and triggering nAChRα1/twist/caspase-mediated excitotoxic death of central GABAergic inhibitory neurons, culminating in neuropathic allodynia (Fig. 6I). Together, these data highlight a previously unknown neuropathic injury response program that promotes heightened sensory vigilance and an augmented escape response changes that may help promote survival in dangerous environments.. We found that damaging the fly leg triggered heat allodynia, and this occurred through a neuropathic mechanism. After the initial damage, the remaining sensory neurons in the leg exhibited peripheral degeneration as allodynia developed, and ...

NERI, Letícia Oliveira et al. Hind Limb Sensory Innervation in Rats: Comparison between Sural and Saphenous Nerve Morphometry. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2015, vol.33, n.2, pp.743-750. ISSN 0717-9502. Although numerous studies investigate sensory recovery of the hind paw of the rat after nerve damage, still no comprehensive overview of its normal innervation is present in the literature. We investigated the morphometry of myelinated fibers in the sural and saphenous nerves and analyzed their size distributions in young rats. Six 30-day-old female Wistar rats were perfused with 2.5% glutaraldehyde and their right and left sural and saphenous nerves were prepared for light microscopy and morphometry.

Neurapraxia was first described in 1942 by Dr. Seddon who also named it transient block (1). It is the mildest form of peripheral nerve injury, characterized as transient loss of motor or sensory conduction without nerve structural changes. The motor and proprioceptive fibers are affected more often. Usually the nerves regain function in days to weeks. Cold, ischemia, compression, and blunt injury are common causes. The exact mechanism is unknown but lamellar separation of myelin sheath was found to be related (2).. References ...
Hall also mentioned that the products of ActivArmor are suitable for a wide range of patients, ranging from athletes to children to the elderly. Athletes especially love the idea and the casts of ActivArmor because of their breathability, water resistance which allows them to take baths while wearing the cast, but most importantly the flexibility they need being athletes which regular casts could not provide. This also makes the parents happy because they do not have to worry as much of the kids getting their casts wet or dirty. ActivArmor makes casts for al sorts of injuries from fractures to dislocations, ligament injuries, Osteo and Rheumatoid Arthritis to Peripheral nerve injuries ...

  • Neuropathy consists of the damage to the sensory, motor, or automatic nerves that originate from an internal cause. (
  • Otherwise called peripheral neuropathy, this condition leads to weakness, numbness, and pain to the furthest points of the body like hands and feet. (
  • Peripheral neuropathy can influence one nerve (mononeuropathy), at least two nerves in various regions (multiple mononeuropathy) or numerous nerves (polyneuropathy). (
  • Standard neuropathy treatment analysis the fundamental side effects causing the nerve pain. (
  • The nerve damage caused by Cipro is known as "peripheral neuropathy. (
  • The same is true for spinal stenosis and diabetic neuropathy, or damage to the nerves in the legs and feet. (
  • For example, a nerve test such as electromyography (EMG) can help the doctor detect neuropathy, and a blood flow test such as the ankle brachial index (ABI) can distinguish between spinal stenosis and peripheral arterial disease. (

(
  • By contrast, severe nerve injuries lead to axonal degeneration, in which case recovery does not occur except by axonal regeneration or sprouting from surviving neighboring axons and is likely to be prolonged and incomplete. (
  • Our rehabilitation protocol can be considered an alternative in order to stimulate and accelerate the nerve regeneration process. (
  • It is well understood that successful recovery following nerve surgery first requires proper nerve regeneration and accurate axonal reconnection of the nerves to the skeletal muscles. (
  • a particular focus on facial nerve regeneration. (
  • Regeneration from the peripheral anxious program (PNS) after damage has a far better outcome set alongside the central anxious program (CNS). (
  • Sunderland 1 and 2 injuries result in complete recovery, whereas in grades 3 to 5 5 Wallerian degeneration takes place, which is followed by aberrant regeneration of varying degrees. (

  • This study tracks nerve regeneration in live animals using a serial imaging system. (
  • The peripheral nervous system (PNS) exhibits a much larger capacity for regeneration than the central nervous system (CNS). (
  • The olfactory nerve is constantly turning over throughout life, which means OECs are continuously stimulating neural regeneration, whilst SCs only promote regeneration after direct injury to the PNS. (
  • The effect of short time vibration exposure and tourniquet compression on nerve regeneration in rats was studied with special reference to cell activation. (
  • Preventing or reversing peripheral nerve dysfunction after SCI is essential to maintain this critical component of the nervous system in readiness for the application of other emerging interventions focused on spinal cord repair. (

  • While acute pain is a normal sensation triggered in the nervous system to alert you to possible injury and the need to take care of yourself, chronic pain is different. (
  • This means there is damage to the peripheral nervous system, or the vast network that receives communications from your brain and spinal cord. (
  • The peripheral nervous system includes sensory receptors. (

  • We are pleased to note that this study confirmed our observations as indeed we were the first authors to report on the therapeutic potential of peripheral and central CatS inhibition for the treatment of neuropathic pain (Barclay et al. (
  • This article supports our suggestion that CatS is critical for neuropathic pain maintenance, because in figure 1a of Zhang and colleagues article, CatS knockout mice develop the same degree of allodynia as wild-type mice 1 and 2 days after injury. (
  • Likewise, in figure 1b when the CatS antagonist ZFL is administered by daily injections commencing on day 0 after injury a total of 5 days are required to start reversing allodynia, which is in line with a lack of participation in the initiation of neuropathic pain that we have previously demonstrated. (
  • Here, we evaluated the mechanical antinociceptive effect of IQM-PC332, a novel ligand of the multifunctional protein downstream regulatory element antagonist modulator (DREAM) in rats subjected to chronic constriction injury of the sciatic nerve as a model of neuropathic pain. (
  • Additionally, there is Title Loaded From File increasing evidence that peripheral nerve injury induces the infiltration of peripheral immune cells into the spinal cord, which contributes to the pathogenesis of neuropathic pain [4? (
  • Recently, we reported that TRPM2 expressed in macrophages and spinal microglia contributes to the pathogenesis of inflammatory and neuropathic pain through the aggravation of peripheral and central pronociceptive inflammatory responses in mice [24]. (
  • However, previous experiments using TRPM2-KO mice did not determine whether TRPM2 expressed in peripheral immune cells or spinal microglia is more relevant to neuropathic pain. (
  • The present study further explored the role of TRPM2 expressed in peripheral 23977191 immune cells in neuropathic pain by generating bone marrow (BM) chimeric mice by crossing wildtype (WT) and TRPM2-KO mice with green fluorescence protein-positive (GFP+) BM transplantation. (
  • We then examined the development of peripheral nerve injury-induced neuropathic pain, and observed Iba1-positive (Iba1+) macrophages/micro.Tion that often results from peripheral nerve injury. (

  • The clinical indications for Doppler ultrasound studies included Diabetes Foot Syndrome (DFS), Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT), peripheral arterial disease, and leg swellings. (
  • Within a few hours, the proximal portion of the severed nerve initiates a regenerative response with axonal outgrowth that migrates to the distal portion, which degenerates after the latent phase of the injury. (
  • Whether there is a linkage between the Wallerian degeneration (after axonal transection) and the large group of peripheral nerve diseases known as dying back neuropathies, in which axon degeneration is also most prominent in distal nerves and spreads in a retrograde manner, is usually unclear [6]. (
  • The use of transgenic mice that strongly express EYFP in their peripheral neurons, coupled with serial nerve imaging, provide an important methodology for studying the heterogeneous nature of axonal elongation following peripheral-nerve injuries. (
  • One of the most notable protective functions of NAD is to delay axonal degenerations caused by various neurodegenerative injuries. (
  • ANESTHESIOLOGISTS have an important role in preventing perioperative nerve injury, monitoring nerve function to minimize damage, and diagnosing peripheral nerve lesions at an early stage to optimize their management. (
