Keywords:rat’s sciatic nerve, large nerve’s defect, sciatic nerve functional index, autoneuroplastics, tubulization, combined plastics, experiment
Introduction. The aim of the research was sciatic nerve functional recovery quantification at it’s large defect replacement using methods of combined plastics in rats in experiment.
Materials and methods. To control sciatic nerve functional recovery “Walking track analysis” was used.
Results. On the base of 3 main parameters of imprints of soles of hinder legs sciatic functional index (SFI).
Conclusions. 1. The indicators of sciatic nerve functional recovery at it’s defect using combined plastics methods come nearer to results, obtained at nerve’s defect replacement using autoneuroplastics.
2. Sciatic nerve’s functional recovery level at it’s defect do not depends on the variant of combined plastics.
