Voluntary and stimulation single-fiber electromyography were performed in the extensor digitorum communis muscle of 15 myasthenic patients. The increase in mean and individual mean consecutive difference as well as the proportion of blocking in the volitional activation were greater than in the stimulation method. These differences may be explained in part(More)
A longitudinal study was performed of 11 patients on hemodialysis (HD) who where changed from cuprophane (CU) to polysulfone (PSF) membranes. Delivered Kt/V was approximately 1.1 throughout the study period. Motor conduction velocities (MCV) and sensory conduction velocities (SCV) were measured predialysis and postdialysis while the patients were still on(More)
The informative value of the neutrophilic segmentation index (NSI) was estimated in 77 patients with primary streptococcal tonsillitis and in 40 normal young subjects. This index was found reduced at the peak of the disease in all the patients, this decrease depending on the disease severity. During convalescence the sooner NSI recovered, the milder was the(More)
Needle Electromyography (NEMG) was performed in 228 patients who had been diagnosed by means of motor and sensory median nerve conductions of having Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). Evaluating abnormal spontaneous muscle activity (fibrillations, positive sharp waves, fasciculation potentials and myokymic discharges) and recruitment pattern, 51.7% of them(More)
