This preliminary research determines whether a
combination of reverse end-to-side neurorrhaphy and rapamycin treatment achieves a better
functional outcome than a single application after prolonged
peripheral nerve injury. We found that the tibial nerve function of the reverse end-to-side + rapamycin group recovered better, with a higher tibial function index value, higher
amplitude recovery rate, and shorter latency delay rate (P
