The internal epineurium was found surrounding CFs 41'a and 41'b in the process of formation of nerve NI2 and ready to emerge as these CFs were found absent in section A7 6.
The dura mater fuses with the superficial CT covering of the entire nerve (epineurium).
The clinical administration of peripheral nerve injury is still the classic epineurium or perineurium neurorrhaphy that dates back to more than 100 years ago.[2] However, efficient anastomosis of homogeneous nerve fibers in bilateral neural stumps cannot be achieved merely through these two surgical methods.

Grafts such as vein (3,8), artery (3), muscle (9-11), epimysium (7) and epineurium (4,12) have been used with tubulisation techniques as nerve guide conduits.
Change of sensation in leprosy by selective meshing of the epineurium. EurJ PlastSurg, 2005; 28: 393-399.
This is especially so when a therapeutic approach is under investigation, as it does not involve complete damage to the side of the nerve, for example, the epineurium, as is the case with section and repair [22].
Then, both the rostral and caudal margins of the lesion site were marked at the epineurium with 10-0 nondegradable sutures individually for future identification.
The inflammatory response is localized around the vessels of epineurium and perineurium [10].
In mice with partial sciatic nerve ligation (PSL), the procedure induced leptin production from adipocytes present in the epineurium of the injured sciatic nerve, and leptin proved to be necessary for PSL-induced tactile allodynia.
(1) Since there was no obvious articular branch in this case, we tried to dissect the epineurium of the nerve between the fascicles proximally to the exit of the tunnel and distally though the deep peroneal nerve over the bifurcation of the superior and deep peroneal nerve for the decompression.
(1) Histologically, each peripheral nerve consists of axons, Schwann cells that form myelin sheaths around some axons, endoneurium, perineurium, and epineurium. (2) Variations of histologic features and differences among species promote controversies regarding the nomenclature of nerve sheath tumors.
