Prevalence of median to ulnar anastomosis in the forearm(Martin-Gruber anastomosis; MGA) to the first dorsal interosseous(FDI), abductor digiti quinti (ADQ) and adductor pollicis(AP) was investigated. Subjects contained 106 patients with normal nerve conduction or patients with various neuropathies. Recording electrodes were placed on the motor point of(More)
In motor nerve conduction studies compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs) appear later than sensory nerve action potentials (SNAPs). This time lag originates from the conduction delay at the distal motor axon, neuromuscular transmission time and muscle action potential induction time. To investigate the latency difference between CMAPs and SNAPs we(More)
We investigated characteristics of segmental motor conduction in the median and the ulnar nerves. Subjects were 55 individuals with normal conduction of the upper extremity and 71 patients with diabetes mellitus. Mean polyneuropathy index (PNI), which was determined as a mean percentage of the normal for 6 indices concerning to the conduction velocity in(More)
In order to clarify the suitability of sensory nerve action potential(SNAP) in the evaluation of diabetic polyneuropathy, we studied measurements of SNAPs in the median, ulnar and sural nerves. Subjects were 253 patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus; 167 men and 86 women, aged 58.2 +/- 12.8(mean +/- SD) years old. Their diabetic history was(More)
Ulnar nerve can be stretched with the elbow flexed position. To avoid elbow flexed position in patients with ulnar neuropathy at the elbow we used an athletic elbow supporter. We herein demonstrate a 31-year-old man with right ulnar neuropathy at the elbow whose neuropathy was resolved by using this supporter only at night. He had complained of weakness and(More)
