Yasargil-Phynox aneurysm clip: a simple and reliable device for making a peripheral nerve injury
A great number of devices were used to make a peripheral nerve injury. In the scientific literature, experimental crush injuries have been usually created using forceps or hemostatic forceps, neither of which allows quantitative or standard application of compression. Therefore, we used a Yasargil-Phynox aneurysm clip to make a reliable and standardized peripheral nerve injury. The advantages and disadvantages of this clip were discussed. In particular, we think that standardization of the compression is necessary to compare interlaboratory results.
