"Diabetic nerve exhibits morphological vulnerability to ischemia and reperfusion, in contrast to its physiological resistance to ischemic conduction failure (RICF). To examine the sequence of ischemic conduction failure after reperfusion in diabetic nerve, we measured sciatic-tibial nerve conduction before and during 30-180 min of ischemia and after reperfusion for up to 1 week in streptozocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats," scientists in Japan report.
M. Baba and colleagues at Hirosaki University determined, "RICF in diabetic rats was confirmed during ischemia....
