Özet

Background: There is a need for a peripheral nerve model on which surgeons-intraining can simulate the repair of nerve injuries at their own pace. Although practicing on animal models/cadavers is considered the "gold standard" of microsurgical training, the proposed model aims to provide a platform for improving the technical skills of surgical trainees prior to their practice on cadaver/animal models. In addition, this model has the potential to serve as a standardized test medium for assessing the skill sets of surgeons.
