2C', is cylindrical 4A-F with two raised bands of ectoderm; buccal podia can be seen in the oral field; epineural folds have grown interradially toward the mouth to separate the developing arms; tracts of cilia are thinner and more connected to form bands; cilia are associated with the hydropore; larval neurons and neurons in the axial region are still present; juvenile nerves and muscles begin to form; muscles staining occurs in the water vascular system; muscle fibers extend dorsally from the base of the tube feet into the body disk Juvenile Juvenile has 19 days Fig.
Complete sciatic nerve resection was found to be significantly associated with the development of leg edema (p = 0.017), chronic pain (p = 0.003), reduced leg function (p < 0.001), and lower MSTS scores (p = 0.001) when compared to epineural nerve dissection.
