Vascularization of the Peripheral Nerve in Laboratory Animals
Fetterman and Spitler (1940), among others, have concluded that vascular diseases lead to ischemic neuropathies. Basing his conclusions on the first systematic studies, Adams (1942) distinguished three kinds of vessels: nutritive vessels, epineural vessels, and an intrafascicular plexus. Blunt (1959), Waksman (1961), and Lang (1962) confirmed these results.
