The aim of the project is the fabrication of conduits to regenerate critical size nerve gaps. It is our aim to
produce porous conduits with a controlled nanoscale morphology in the outer wall, allowing nutrient exchange and
hindering cell ingrowth. The internal space of the conduits should contain aligned nanofibers, to guide axon growth
and cell attachment and migration. Bio-activation and cell interactive characteristics of the conduit will be achieved
by plasma treatment. The so newly created conduits will be tested for their in vitro and in vivo behavior.
