Neurorraphy: 2-Year Follow Up of a Prospective, Blinded Clinical and
Electrophysiological Multicenter Randomized, Controlled Trial, has been
published in the December issue of The Journal of Hand Surgery. Integra stated
that the study concluded that entubulation nerve repair using the NeuraGen
Nerve Guide is as effective a method of repairing mixed motor and sensory
nerves as direct microsurgical suture. Simon Archibald, Chief Scientific
Officer of Integra, commented, "Demonstrating the equivalent effectiveness of
clinical entubulation repair of the major nerves of the forearm compared to
the ''gold standard'’ of microsurgical repair is a significant milestone for
this technology. This is the first report in the literature of a prospective,
randomized, controlled study of functional recovery following the repair of
major mixed motor and sensory nerves, using an approved and commercially
available nerve conduit. We hope that this new information will aid the
expansion and further adoption of the technique." The Full Research Report on
