Clinical and electrophysiologic findings on 136 patients (39 women and 97 men; mean age = 33.2 years) with traumatic peripheral nerve injuries were reviewed. Motor vehicular collisions (MVCs) caused 39.7% and gunshot wounds (GSWs) produced 32.4% of the nerve injuries studied. Other factors such as falls, lacerations, work-related injuries, knife wounds, and(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine which method of measuring waist to hip ratio (WHR) was the most effective in assessing decrements associated with an abdominal fat distribution in 46 non-obese, middle to older aged men (mean +/- s.e., age 52.8 +/- 0.88 years; body fat 19.7 +/- 0.72 percent). Circumferences were obtained at the following sites and(More)
Nerve conduction study was performed on 71 diabetic patients with distal sensorimotor axonopathy. Of 76 lower limbs studied, 46.1% showed no recordable sural compound sensory nerve action potential (CSNAP), and 55.3% no superficial peroneal CSNAP. Only 2.6% revealed no recordable compound muscle action potential (CMAP) from the abductor hallucis (AH)(More)
