Abstract

Purpose: Nerve crush injury results in the incapability to maintain conduction of an impulse. Disruption in the myelin sheath causes very important changes in the activities of ion channels. Therefore, crushed and intact sciatic nerves were researched with both histological and electrophysiological methods in this study.
