It joins a robust list of publications which represent a depth of clinical evidence from both sponsored and independent investigator studies that cover a range of nerve repair applications including extremity trauma, oral and maxillofacial reconstruction, breast reconstruction neurotization
, and repair following the removal of painful neuromas.
In 12 limbs the branches to the supinator muscle (usually two or more branches) were sectioned to allow the PIN to be moved medially shortening the distance allowing this neurotization
distal to the supinator branches.
Beyond extremity trauma and compression injuries, we are expanding adoption of our products in a wide variety of nerve repair surgeries, including oral and maxillofacial applications and our latest initiative, breast reconstruction neurotization
for breast cancer survivors through a pioneering surgical method known as ReSensation.
techniques have revolutionized the surgical treatment of upper extremity injuries (for example, brachial plexus injuries), repair of similar nerve defects in lower limbs often relies on more traditional nerve grafts.

, and osteogenesis of tissue engineered bone in vivo," BioMed Research International, vol.
Clinical results of contralateral C7 root neurotization
to the median nerve in brachial plexus injuries with total root avulsions.
Although Merrell has concluded by recommending shoulder restoration should focus on either a spinal accessory nerve to suprascapular nerve transfer or dual nerve transfer to both suprascapular nerve (SSN) and axillary nerve, the above 2 cases where ICNs were used for SS neurotization
achieved 100% M3 or more shoulder abduction.

Effects of nandrolone on recovery after neurotization
of chronically denervated muscle in a rat model.
Direct motor neurotization
of the facial nerve was first described by Korte in 1903 through the use of the hypoglossal nerve with an end-to-end coaptation to the facial nerve.
These procedures are called direct neuromuscular neurotization
[12-14, 16, 17].
The branches of median nerve to pronator teres can be considered for neurotization
of the radial nerve in the cubital fossa.
