Objectives: To investigate the effect of high-voltage electrical stimulation (HVES) on the morphometric and functional characteristics of the regenerated nerve after crush injury in rats.
Methods: Twenty Wistar rats were randomly allocated into 4 groups: Control (CON) - without injury and without HVES; Denervated (D) - sciatic nerve crush only; Denervated HVES - sciatic nerve crush and HVES; SHAM - without injury but HVES.
The HVES and SHAM groups were stimulated (...
