The different neuropathic pain types (e.g., ongoing burning pain and allodynia) are frequent and disabling complaints in patients with peripheral neuropathies. Although the reference standard technique for diagnosing painful small-fibre neuropathies is nerve fibre density assessment by skin biopsy, the relationship between the epidermal nerve fibre (ENF)(More)
We aimed at seeking more precise diagnostic information on the sensory nervous system involvement described in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). We investigated large myelinated nerve fibres with nerve conduction study and small-nerve fibres with Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) (assessing thermal-pain perceptive thresholds) and skin(More)
The Authors propose a new approach to the treatment and prognostic evaluation of post-traumatic supratentorial acute epidural haematoma (PSAEH). As far as this lesion is concerned a group of patients with a favourable prognosis and without indications for a surgical treatment may be identified. To this purpose, the clinical picture, characterized by a(More)
This study covers the evolution of 21 cases of pure acute epidural hematomas which have been classified as benign, semi-benign and malignant. For the authors immediate surgical treatment is only necessary for the cases of malignant evolution. For cases of semi-benign evolution surgical treatment can be delayed. No treatment is required for haematomas with a(More)
