Intramuscular hemangioma, an infrequent but important cause of musculoskeletal pain, is often difficult to establish the diagnosis clinically. This report describes a case of a 32-yr-old woman who presented with severe left calf pain for 10 yr. Initial conservative treatments consisting of intramuscular electrical stimulation, herb medication, acupuncture,(More)
OBJECTIVE This study is designed to derive a normative database for nerve conduction values of the ulnar nerve in the wrist. METHODS Ulnar nerve study at the wrist (UNSW) was performed in 204 hands of 102 control subjects. The UNSW was composed of motor and sensory tests. Motor UNSW was done with first dorsal interosseous muscle recording. Sensory UNSW(More)
OBJECTIVE To demonstrate the prevalence and characteristics of subclinical ulnar neuropathy at the elbow in diabetic patients. METHODS One hundred and five patients with diabetes mellitus were recruited for the study of ulnar nerve conduction analysis. Clinical and demographic characteristics were assessed. Electrodiagnosis of ulnar neuropathy at the(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish a reliable technique for nerve conduction study (NCS) of medial and lateral branches of the superficial radial nerve (SRN). METHODS The distribution of SRN and its branches were examined in 10 cadavers. Based on the cadaveric study, anti-dromic nerve conduction studies were performed on 31 healthy subjects. RESULTS The SRN became(More)
OBJECTIVE To derive normative values for ulnar nerve conduction study of the active recording electrode on the first dorsal interosseous muscle (FDI) and the reference electrode on the proximal phalanx of the thumb. METHOD Ulnar nerve motor conduction study with FDI and abductor digiti minimi muscle (ADM) recording was performed in 214 hands of 107(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify the anatomic characteristics of the pronator quadratus (PQ) muscle and the entry zone (EZ) of the anterior interosseous nerve (AIN) to this muscle by means of cadaver dissection. METHODS We examined the PQ muscle and AIN in 20 forearms from 10 fresh cadavers. After identifying the PQ muscle and the EZ of the AIN, we measured the(More)
Additional slips of the triceps brachii have been reported in cadaver studies. We report the case of a 48-year-old man with no history of trauma who presented with a tingling sensation and weakness in his right hand. Electromyography revealed ulnar neuropathy around the elbow, with decreased conduction proximal to the medial epicondyle. On ultrasonography(More)
INTRODUCTION Superficial radial sensory nerve (SRN) injury may involve the main nerve or its distal medial or lateral branch. We investigated the utility of SRN conduction studies on the medial and lateral branches in patients with suspected SRN injury. METHODS Fifteen patients with symptoms of SRN neuropathy were studied. Their clinical and(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the midpoint (MD) of extensor hallucis longus muscle (EHL) and compare the accuracy of different needle electromyography (EMG) insertion techniques through cadaver dissection. METHODS Thirty-eight limbs of 19 cadavers were dissected. The MD of EHL was marked at the middle of the musculotendinous junction and proximal origin of EHL.(More)
BACKGROUND It is important to understand the anatomical relationship between the medial and lateral branches of superficial radial nerve (SRN) and the first dorsal compartment to prevent and minimize possible injury to these nerves during various procedures around the tip of radial styloid process (RSP). OBJECTIVE To delineate the anatomical location of(More)
