Abstract

The common peroneal nerve and its surrounding muscles were cut and repaired in 14 rabbits. The injured limb was then either immobilized for 3 weeks or passively mobilized within a "safety range" every day. At 3 weeks after operation, the "stretch test" and "peel test" showed no difference in the biomechanical features of the adhesions between the nerve repair and the surrounding soft tissues.
