Major peripheral nerve injuries, like those that result in amputation, frequently result in disorganized nerve tumors known as neuromas. Left untreated, they result in chronic, debilitating pain. Existing treatments are either insufficient or completely neglect nerve regeneration.
Targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR), which provides a reinnervation target for the nerve stump, is a promising surgical approach for neuroma management. However, a significant failure rate remains due to inherent size mismatch between the stump and the motor nerve target.
Simple. Pain-Relieving. Transformative.
Through an elegant materials and structural design, our device mechanically and chemically facilitates tapered nerve growth to address size mismatch and simplifies TMR.
