Related to reinnervation: denervation

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).

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 of denervated skeletal muscles occurs after 18 to 24 months of injury with the exception of hand intrinsic muscles at 6 months after injury.
In brachial plexus injuries with extended gap between stumps, there may be not sufficient time for regenerating axons to reach the target muscle motor plate before they become permanently resistant to reinnervation. This prolonged period of denervation makes the target muscles susceptible to irreversible degeneration and fibrosis to the terminal motor plates (Ustun et al.; Lowe et al.; Ray & Mackinnon; Sukegawa et al.).

Nerve reconstruction was aimed at reinnervation of the leg musculature and possible sensory reinnervation of the sole which otherwise can lead to serious morbidity, including pressure sores.[1,5] In addition, nerve repair can mitigate and/or reduce the incidence of neuroma formation and subsequent development of neuropathic pain.[9]
In addition to the process of waveform simplification after the loss of motor units, there is also a formation process of large and complex motor units during reinnervation. Surprisingly, this second process has caused an increase in entropy in the resulting EMG curve.
The chance of revascularization and reinnervation of the dental pulp is increasing when the apex is open.
In addition, MUNE methods provide a means of measuring motor unit size, enabling tracking of both loss of motor units and the compensatory phenomenon of collateral reinnervation, and have the advantage of measuring the severity of nerve injury in neuropathy with retained CMAP amplitude; MUNE is already used in neuromuscular disorders such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, spinal muscular atrophy, and neuropathies to monitor neuronal loss [18, 19].

In addition, immune rejection, revascularization, and poor reinnervation are significant obstacles for the survival and function of islet grafts [4, 5].
A recent study reported an inverse relationship between reinnervation post-LASIK and dry eye symptoms, suggesting that post-LASIK dry eye is a neuropathic disease [33].
Such deficits, for example, in cholinergic and glutamatergic innervation, may contribute to functional deficits after muscle reinnervation as they are well correlated with functional performance after long-term reinnervation [9, 12].
TEHRAN (FNA)- Scientists have used functional MRI to show how the brain re-maps motor and sensory pathways following targeted motor and sensory reinnervation (TMSR), a neuroprosthetic approach where residual limb nerves are rerouted towards intact muscles and skin regions to control a robotic limb.
