Abstract (English)

Functional recovery of injured nerves depends on longitudinally directed regrowth of axons over the site of injury, which requires a regrowth directing structured scaffold. In the present study we used alginate-based anisotropic hydrogels, which contain linearly aligned capillaries with variable diameters as a guiding structure for oriented nerve regeneration. These gels were formed by a ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Die funktionelle Wiederherstellung verletzter Nerven hängt unter anderem von einem longitudinal gerichteten Wachstum von Axonen über den Ort der Verletzung hinweg ab, wofür eine physikalische Leitstruktur benötigt wird. In der vorliegenden Arbeit wurden Alginat-basierte anisotrope Hydrogele, die parallel zueinander orientierte Kapillaren aufweisen, als Leitstruktur für eine orientierte ...
