tubulization

tu·bu·li·za·tion

(tū'byū-li-zā'shŭn),
Enclosing the joined ends of a divided nerve, after neurorrhaphy, in a cylinder of paraffin or of some slowly absorbable material to keep the surrounding tissues from pushing in and preventing union.

tubulization

(too″bū-lī-zā′shŭn)
A method of repairing severed nerves in which the nerve ends are placed in a tube of absorbable material.

Enclosing the joined ends of a divided nerve, after neurorrhaphy, in a cylinder of paraffin or of some slowly absorbable material to keep surrounding tissues from intruding and thereby preventing union.

The tubulization technique seems to favor a greater orientation of the neural stumps and the concentration of neurotrophic factors released by nerve ends during the regenerative process (Geuna et al., 2014).
The surgical techniques are classified into two groups: restrictive techniques (vertical banded gastroplasty, adjustable gastric band, sleeve or gastric tubulization) and mixed techniques, which have a restrictive and malabsorptive component.
