The article discusses the common type of nerve damage to a growing limb and the effective molecular techniques for nerve regeneration. The authors indicate that loss of limb innervations in the perinatal period results in reduced growth and development of bones as well as limb function. They stress that restoration of function to a limb with nerve injury depends on rapid, effective nerve regeneration.
