Abstract

The effectiveness of epineurial, perineurial, and a combined epiperineurial method of nerve suture in the severed sciatic nerve of rabbits was studied by biochemical assay of the collagen just distal to the neuroma and the collagen and myelin content of the posterior tibial nerve. Repairs were done both immediately after severance and in a separate group 3 weeks later. More collagen was found near the neuroma in the immediate epineurial group, but 60 percent of the normal myelin was found in the posterior tibial nerve after the immediate epineurial suture compared to 28.3 percent in the immediate perineurial group.
