Sural Hypersensitivity after Nerve Transection depends on Anatomical Differences in the Distal Tibial Nerve of Mice and Rats.



Various mouse and rat models of neuropathic pain after nerve injury exist. Whilst some models involve a proximal nerve lesion or ligation of the sciatic trifurcation in mice and rats, others consists of a transection or ligation of distal nerves at the tibial bifurcation in mice or rats. The level of nerve cut directly affects the magnitude of hypersensitivity, and anatomical differences between mice and rats might therefore impact the development of hypersensitivity after distal tibial nerve transection as well.
