Purpose: The aim of this study was to perform a mini-review on the effects of low-level laser therapy on nerve regeneration.
Methods: In this study, the authors associated the new fibrin sealant derived from snake venom as a method of nerve repair end-to-side.
Results and conclusion: The use of fibrin sealant effectively provided an axonal regeneration and the association with low-level laser therapy elevated this regenerative process, as demonstrated in the morphometric and morphological analyzes.
