The partially denervated human fingertip was used as a model to correlate results of a detailed evaluation of sensibility with the presence of reinnervated sensory corpuscles identified by light and electron microscopy. In each of the three patients studied, the histologically identified reinnervated mechanoreceptors were appropriate to provide the neurophysiologic basis for the observed results of clinically tested sensibility.
