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.

As stated above, nerve regeneration after injury is possible in the PNS and involves major events such as Wallerian degeneration, axonal degeneration, remyelination, axonal regeneration, and nerve reinnervation.
Electromyography revealed signs of ongoing reinnervation in the obturator nerve distribution and a reduced contraction pattern in the femoral and sciatic nerve musculature.
No differences in striatal [18F]DOPA uptake were observed between transplanted patients who did or did not develop GID [20, 23], suggesting that GID should not be caused by excessive growth of the grafted DA neurons, or abnormalities in striatal DA reinnervation.
In conclusion, the NCV and EMG studies showed a sensory and motor neuropathy, axonal type, with signs of reinnervation, consistent with a chronic process and severe expression.
If replenishing a healthy muscle stem cell pool facilitates reinnervation and recovery, it would be a significant leap forward.
3) The longer a muscle is denervated, the more the probability of reinnervation decreases, indicating the need for early evaluation, including exploration of the temporal nerve, to expedite the treatment plan and potentially improve outcomes.
