Number of labeled motor and sensory neurons after ETE neurorrhaphy
Motor Sensory Motor/Total Sensory/Total
Intact MCN 308 ± 41 1549 ± 87 0.166 ± 0.010 0.864 ± 0.009
Plasmid phVEGF ETE 131 ± 40* 151 ± 49* 0.468 ± 0.063* 0.535 ± 0.158*
Plasmid ETE 97 ± 26* 121 ± 30* 0.445 ± 0.019* 0.555 ± 0.128*
Vehiculum ETE 84 ± 11* 105 ± 8* 0.444 ± 0.022* 0.559 ± 0.050*

* indicates statistic significance (P < 0.05) when compared with intact MCN.

Number of labeled motor and sensory neurons and their relations to the total number of labeled neurons in intact MCN and the MCN stumps after their transfection by plasmid phVEGF, plasmid alone or vehiculum treatment and ETE neurorrhaphy (n = 6 for each group). No statistically significant differences were found among experimental groups.
