Fibrin sealant as scaffold can be a suitable substitute to autograft in short peripheral nerve defect in rats

There is considerable evidence that peripheral nerves have the potential to regenerate in an appropriate microenvironment. In this study, the process of nerve regeneration through a fibrin scaffold was examined. 45 male Wistar rats were randomly divided into one control, Autograft (Auto) and two experimental groups, Epineurum (Epi) and Fibrin scaffold (Fib). Right sciatic nerve was exposed of which 5 mm was cut. The...
