Summary and conclusions.
Since surgeons and neurologists primarily have had to deal with the large number of peripheral nerve injuries resulting from the late war, there has been an unusual number of investigations carried on to determine the underlying principles of nerve regeneration and the best methods of treating them. The physiologic and anatomic features of nerve degeneration, as well as the surgical methods to correct them, have been studied particularly by Howell,1 Huber,2Ranson,3 Vanlair,4 Kilvington,5 Sherren,6 Lewis,7 Langley,8 Pollock,9 Tinel,10 Athanassio Bénisty11 and others. Few of the researches have combined the physiologic and
