    Great. But only for acute injuries?

    On a website for injury lawyers, this sounds more like smoke to be blown in jurors' eyes that a new treatment existed at the time of their client's injury.

    The expert described how the technique involves blocking the body's natural repair process before gluing a severed nerve back together, which then allows for a more efficient join up than suturing the injury.

    I've been hearing this kind of crap for years. Hopefully, there is something meaningful going on here, but after being filtered thorough a couple of lawyers, it came out junk.

    Sorry, I think my cynicism is showing.
