Abstract

Different regeneration conduits braided from biodegradable material poly (glycolide-co-L-lactide) (PGLA) for peripheral nerve repair and their radial compressive properties are presented. The influences of the braided structure and braiding angle are discussed. The results have shown that the nerve conduit braided with the triaxial structure at 60 degrees of the braiding angle has a greater ability to resist radial compression.
