The treatment of peripheral nerve defects requires bridging materials. Skeletal muscle grafts have been studied as an alternative to nerve autografts because they contain longitudinally aligned bas...
: To investigate the effects of triptolide (T10) on the cellular activity of cryopreserved rat sciatic nerves and nerve regeneration after allotransplantation. : After the optimal T10 concentration wa...
Schwann cells (SCs) combined with acellular nerve allografts (ANAs) effectively promote the regeneration and repair of peripheral nerves, but the exact mechanism has not been fully elucidated. However...
Peripheral nerve damage is a common clinical complication of traumatic injury occurring after accident, tumorous outgrowth, or surgical side effects. Although the new methods and biomaterials have bee...
This study was conducted to determine the effects of different doses and methods of extracorporeal shock wave treatment (ESWT) on the sciatic nerve regeneration of rat model using unbiased quantitativ...
Sciatic nerve blocks are frequently used for anesthesia or analgesia for surgery of the lower legs. Currently, if ultrasound is used to find the sciatic nerve, the leg must be raised to l...
Little is known about which posture of lower extremity makes it easier to access to the sciatic nerve. In this study, the investigators aimed to identify the most appropriate positioning o...
This prospective observational study aimed to examine the pharmacokinetics of ropivacaine in patients with chronic kidney disease after sciatic nerve block. Sciatic nerve block for foot a...
This study aims to compare the sensory and motor block duration and the incidence of nerve injury after sciatic nerve block between diabetic and non-diabetic patients, and screen for the f...
The aim of the study is to compare the time of home discharge in day-case patients receiving either a spinal anesthesia or a combined sciatic-femoral nerve block for knee arthroscopy
A nerve which originates in the lumbar and sacral spinal cord (L4 to S3) and supplies motor and sensory innervation to the lower extremity. The sciatic nerve, which is the main continuation of the sacral plexus, is the largest nerve in the body. It has two major branches, the TIBIAL NERVE and the PERONEAL NERVE.
Disease or damage involving the SCIATIC NERVE, which divides into the PERONEAL NERVE and TIBIAL NERVE (see also PERONEAL NEUROPATHIES and TIBIAL NEUROPATHY). Clinical manifestations may include SCIATICA or pain localized to the hip, PARESIS or PARALYSIS of posterior thigh muscles and muscles innervated by the peroneal and tibial nerves, and sensory loss involving the lateral and posterior thigh, posterior and lateral leg, and sole of the foot. The sciatic nerve may be affected by trauma; ISCHEMIA; COLLAGEN DISEASES; and other conditions. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1363)
The lateral of the two terminal branches of the sciatic nerve. The peroneal (or fibular) nerve provides motor and sensory innervation to parts of the leg and foot.
The medial terminal branch of the sciatic nerve. The tibial nerve fibers originate in lumbar and sacral spinal segments (L4 to S2). They supply motor and sensory innervation to parts of the calf and foot.
Renewal or physiological repair of damaged nerve tissue.
