Different regeneration tubes 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 tube braided with the triaxial structure and the braiding angle at 60 has a higher ability to resist the radial compressions.
