Abstract

Object. This experimental study Was designed to evaluate functional and sensory outcomes and morphological features observed after simultaneous end-to-side coaptations of distal stumps of two nerves to a single neighboring nerve. Studies were performed Ming both parallel and end-to-side coaptation (PEC) and serial end-to-side coaptation (SEC) methods in it rat model.
