Intraneural hemangioma is extremely rare, and there are no reported cases that describe multilevel ulnar neuropathy caused by multiple intraneural hemangiomas in a single nerve. We report the case of a 47-year-old man with multilevel ulnar neuropathy caused by multiple intraneural hemangiomas in an ipsilateral ulnar nerve. Multilevel ulnar neuropathy was(More)
Pain patterns of the myofascial trigger points (TrP) for most muscles of the forearm have been documented. However, there are no published reports on the referred pain patterns for the pronator quadratus (PQ) muscle. The purpose of this study was to determine the referred pain pattern of the TrP in the PQ. Thirty-five arms of 35 healthy adult volunteers(More)
INTRODUCTION Although isolated injury of the sural nerve is frequently reported, entrapment involving the lateral calcaneal branch of the sural nerve (LCSN) is very rare. METHODS We report the case of a 29-year-old man with lateral calcaneal neuropathy of the sural nerve without any history of trauma. The diagnosis was based on clinical,(More)
"Hip-huggers" may be a precipitating factor for meralgia paresthetica (MP), especially in thin persons with an aberrant pathway of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN). We describe a 25-year-old woman with a long-standing history of MP caused by an abnormal course of the LFCN and tight trousers, specifically hip-huggers. Ultrasonography was useful for(More)
This study assesses the value of standard quantitative autonomic (QAT) and sensation (QST) tests in detecting, characterizing, and quantitating the severity of transthyretin amyloid polyneuropathy (TTR-A-PN). This information is needed for prospective therapeutic trials, epidemiologic surveys, and medical practice. We reviewed 36 patients with TTR-A-PN who(More)
Tissue engineering approaches for promoting the repair of peripheral nerve injuries have focused on cell-based therapies involving Adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs). The authors evaluated the effects of undifferentiated ASCs and of neurally differentiated ASCs on the regenerating abilities of peripheral nerves. We hope that this would demonstrate the(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 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)
