Nerve injuries

Dear Sir or Madam,

Nerve injuries are a big challenge for physicians because the defects can not always be sutured. Even minor injuries, such as after a cut with the scalpel, do not always grow together as desired. Special nanofibers, which are currently being researched at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, are to help. Read more in our current interview.

Have a nice day!

Led by Dr. Christopher Synatschke, the research team of Professor Tanja Weil (Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research) has now developed a novel biomaterial that is designed to promote our body’s natural self-healing mechanisms.

Improved patient safety. That’s the ultimate goal of the new EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR), which was published in 2017. Starting May 2020, it will apply to all medical devices in the EU. However, a growing number of people predict that this will be difficult to implement.
