The electrical activities of MTrPs are definitively associated with motor endplates [22].
The posterior approach was revolutionary because the ease of dissection, no interpositional graft was required, and it places the donor close to the motor endplate of the recipient.
These focal hypersensitivity areas are known as myofascial trigger points (MTrPs) [2, 8, 10, 11] and are associated with dysfunctional motor endplates [8,10,12-14].
We can infer that, both end-to-side neurorrhaphy that recover and prevents motor endplate atrophy as side-to-side neurorraphy that is independent of the distance between the nerve stumps are surgical repair options.
Our early intervention allowed for nerve regrowth prior to damage to the motor endplate and subsequent muscle atrophy.
(2011b; 2015; 2016) explored the role of local protein synthesis in regenerating axons, combined acetylcholinesterase and silver method for demonstrating motor endplates, and expression of Akt, MAPK, c-Jun and c-Fos in the dorsal root ganglia in accelerating motor and sensory functional recovery after crush injury by H.
