Distribution analyses of myelinated axon diameters. Distribution analyses of myelinated axon diameters in MCN stumps transfected with plasmid phVEGF and plasmid alone 2 months after their end-to-end and end-to-side neurorrhaphy. In comparison to transfection with plasmid alone, the phVEGF transfection induced a decreased percentage (↓) of myelinated axons with diameters from 1.1 to 2.0 μm, while there was an increased percentage (↑) in the range of 2.1 to 8.0 μm and 2.1 to 7.0 μm after end-to-end and end-to-side neurorrhaphy, respectively
