Increased TTX-resistance of the sciatic nerve after SNE. A: TTX-resistance of the A-fiber sciatic nerve compound action potential (CAP) ipsilateral to SNE (n = 8) compared to contralateral, naïve and sham surgery nerves (n = 8). CAP response is expressed as a % of recorded amplitude before TTX administration. A-fiber CAP stimulus was 0.1 mA, 0.1 ms throughout. B: Changes in TTX-resistance of the C-fiber sciatic nerve CAP after SNE. C-fiber CAP stimulus was 10 mA, 0.5 ms throughout. * indicates significant difference from control nerve sensitivity to TTX (p < 0.05, two-way ANOVA, Tukey post-hoc). Tissue was harvested 2 weeks after SNE or sham surgery.
