Constriction of a peripheral nerve may precipitate a primary problem or prevent recovery from a pre-existing one. Any surgical technique to minimize subsequent constrictive scar formation would be advantageous. In this study, using rat femoral nerves, various modes of protection were evaluated. Wrapping the nerve with free fat seemed to offer the best prophylaxis.
