344 Finally, Isaacs et al again published a study on RETS nerve repair comparing transection with primary repair to transection with primary repair plus RETS nerve transfer. 345 Mackinnon and colleagues have developed a model of RETS that comprehensively evaluates the surgical technique in a rodent. The model uses the injured tibial nerve as the recipient and the transected peroneal nerve as the donor. 346 With the inclusion of a true positive control consisting of an end-to-end (ETE) coaptation to evaluate maximum axonal input from the peroneal nerve, the model provides a comprehensive evaluation of the efficiency and success of RETS nerve transfers.

Several studies using the peripheral nerves in rat models have been used to demonstrate this phenomenon. In one study, a reduction in speed of > 50% was 17 Anatomy and Physiology for the Peripheral Nerve Surgeon 1 Fig. 15 Preferential motor reinnervation. Following injury to a mixed motor and sensory nerve, regenerating axons will preferentially regenerate down a modality-matched terminal pathway. A small proportion of the regenerating axons will inappropriately innervate a mismatched sensory or muscle target.
