Fabrication and Radial Compressive Properties of the Biodegradable Woven Regeneration Conduits for Peripheral Nerve Repair
Novel regeneration conduits woven from biodegradable poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyhexanoate) (PHBHHx) fibers for peripheral nerve repair and their radial compressive properties are presented. The influence of the fabric structures was discussed. The results showed that the 1/3 weave has a higher ability to resist the mechanical compression than the 3/1 weave. The woven conduits have potential applications in nerve regeneration and improving peripheral nerve functional recovery.
