Neuroma formation is a persistent challenge in peripheral nerve injury treatment. Targeted Muscle Reinnervation (TMR) has emerged as a promising technique for neuroma prevention; however, there remains a substantial failure rate. Erica B. Lee @elee113 and her co-authors from the Johns Hopkins Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery evaluated the effect of a novel bioengineered device designed to overcome the size-mismatch limitations of TMR using a rodent hindlimb model. They found a decrease in neuroma formation as well as increased axonal guidance across the coaptation site, supporting the use of this device to improve nerve coaptation outcomes in the setting of TMR. A Novel Funnel Conduit for Improved Nerve Coaptation Outcomes in Targeted Muscle Reinnervation Erica B.
