(39-41) Recently, animal studies and clinical trials have shown good results using biologic and biodegradable substances such as mesothelium, omentum, vein, artery, and polyglycolic acid (PGA) as conduits that allow regenerating nerve fibers to course their way to the end organs or nerve stump.
Suturing was performed with polyglycolic acid under topical or pudendal block anesthesia.
