Abstract

Animal models are widely used in research of peripheral nerve injury and regeneration, since there are only minor differences in the anatomy of peripheral nerves and the physiology of nerve regeneration between the humans and animals. Animal models, especially rodents, are widely used for this purpose. This narrative review provides a brief overview of the role of animal models in peripheral nerve surgery and research.
