STUDY AIM This prospective study aim to examine whether clinical findings and electrodiagnostic testing (EDX) in patients with lumbosacral monoradiculopathy due to herniated disc (HD) differ as a function of root involvement level (L5 vs. S1) and HD zone (paramedian vs. intraforaminal). PATIENTS AND METHODS All patients with L4, L5 or S1 monoradiculopathy(More)
OBJECTIVE Normal sensory nerve action potential (SNAP) amplitude is a classical neurographic rule whether damage is located proximal to the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) as in radiculopathy. The study's aim is to check SNAP reduction in patients with lumbosacral radiculopathy due to herniated disc (HD). METHODS A total of 108 consecutive patients with(More)

First, it is shown that, within the debate about structural realism (SR), epistemic (ESR) and ontic (OSR) structural realism are reconcilable by using the methodology of the levels of abstractions.

In the course of the analysis, we explain why Adar and Huberman's(More)
According to literature reports about experimental damages in several organs with high metabolic rate induced by a rich animal protein diet, authors studied in rats, which had been exposed to hyperproteinic diet (casein 40%, lactalbumin 20%) since fetal life, the eyeball and external ocular muscle modifications. Histologic studies at different times have(More)
