reinnervation

 [re″in-er-va´shun]
restoration of nerve function to a part from which it was lost; it may occur spontaneously or be achieved by nerve grafting.

re·in·ner·va·tion

(rē'inĕr-vā'shŭn),
Reestablishment of neural control of a formerly paralyzed muscle or of other effector organ by means of proximal to distal regrowth of nerve fibers, or by sprouting from nearby intact nerve fibers (collateral sprouting).

reinnervation

/re·in·ner·va·tion/ (-in-er-va´shun) restoration of nerve supply to a part from which it has been lost; it may occur spontaneously or by nerve grafting.

re·in·ner·va·tion

(rē-in'ĕr-vā'shŭn)
Restoration of nerve control of a paralyzed muscle or other effector organ by means of regrowth of nerve fibers, either spontaneously or after anastomosis.

reinnervation

restoration of nerve function to a paralysed muscle/group of muscles/limb, following regrowth/regeneration/reanastomosis of subserving nerve fibres

reinnervation

the operation of grafting a viable nerve to restore the nerve supply of an organ or paralyzed muscle.

Joining these nerves together allows them to then grow into, or reinnervate, the target muscle and prevent the neuroma from reforming.

When administered after femoral nerve transection and surgical repair in rats, as little as 1 h of ES accelerates axonal growth across the injury site, thereby reducing the time needed for motoneurons to reinnervate muscles [11].
Four problems in particular are encountered at the periphery: (1) the higher the level of the initial injury is, the greater is the retrograde damage to the cell body, (2) regenerating axons must successfully cross the site of nerve repair, (3) regenerating axons must locate an endoneural sheath that once housed a sensory axon, and (4) regenerating axons must successfully reinnervate a sensory end organ.
