Özet

Background Complete nerve regeneration and clinical healing remain a challenge despite considerable advances in the treatment of peripheral nerve injuries. To improve nerve regeneration, several experimental molecular procedures have been attempted. This study aimed to investigate the effects of folic acid on peripheral nerve healing after transection and end-to-end suture repair of the tibial nerve in rats.
