Peripheral nerve injury can be surgically treated, but functional recovery is still unsatisfactory. That is why additional methods that can be applied after surgical repair and which modulate nerve regeneration are sought, this regeneration involving both the morphological recovery of the axon and the myelin sheath, but also the functional, physiological recovery of the peripheral nerve. Thus, in recent years, experimental studies have been undertaken in vivo and in vitro, but also in clinical trials involving electric stimulation, low-level laser therapy and pharmacotherapy. But many of these attempts are not yet standardized and well established, although their effect on the anatomicalfunctional recovery of the peripheral nerve is indisputable. In this review we present a brief overview of the main results obtained in these researches in recent years.
