Nerve Cap Implants

Definition : Implantable devices designed to cover the severed end of a nerve to facilitate its healing. These implants typically consist of a plastic (possibly biodegradable) or elastomeric (e.g., silicone rubber) hollow cylinder with one end closed and the other open for the insertion of the nerve extremity, encasing and capping the nerve. Nerve cap implants are intended to prevent nerve scars and to minimize the formation of neural tumors (i.e., neuromas).
