Tissue adhesives, laser neurorrhaphy, tubulization, and trophic factors have been investigated in an attempt to improve neural regeneration.
However, long-term tubulization of a nerve produces localized compression with resultant decreased axonal conduction, although total number of nerve fibers and axon size remain constant.
