- Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP)
- We present an optimistic neural solution to the depressing challenge of decubitus pressure ulcers in the paraplegic patient. This is a limited study of two paraplegic men followed for several years. Sural nerve grafts, performed end-to-side, successfully bridged the sciatic nerve to intercostal nerves with surprising benefits for both men.
