    Schwann Cell Supplementation in Neurosurgical Procedures after Neurotrauma
    Author(s): Santiago R UndaSantiago R Unda

    Nerve trauma is a common cause of quality of life decline, especially in young people. Causing a high impact in personal, psychological and economic issues. The peripheral nerve injury (PNI) with a several grade of axonotmesis and neurotmesis represents a real challenge for neurosurgeons. However, the basic science has greatly contribute to axonal degeneration and regeneration knowledge, making possible to implement in new protocols with molecular and cellular techniques for improve nerve re-growth and to restore motor and sensitive function. The Schwann cell transplantation from different stem cells origins is one of the potential tools for new therapies. In this briefly review is included the recent results of animal and human neurosurgery protocols of Schwann cells transplantation for nerve recovery after a PNI. .. View More»
