Abstract

The nerve system has the upmost role in coordinating the actions of an animal. It is, therefore, important to repair the damaged nerve to restore its functions. In this study, we braided poly(lactic acid) ply yarn into a tubular structure using a 16-spindle braiding machine, aiming at making a nerve conduit. The results showed that the poly(lactic acid) braid obtains the maximum tensile stress when the ratio of take-up gear and braid gear is 60/50. The extensibility of the produced braid makes it a suitable conduit for nerve regeneration.
