With the increase in the use of shoulder arthroscopy in the past decade, there has been an increased awareness of complications. Reports of the occurrence of transient neuropraxia indicate an incidence of 10%-30%. The recording of somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) for the study and functional monitoring of the sensory pathway is well accepted as a(More)
Most of the investigation of the properties of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) has focused on its biomechanical functions. There has been increasing interest in the study of the possible neuroreceptor function of the ACL and its role in providing important proprioceptive feedback. Anatomic and histologic studies in humans have shown the presence of(More)
Somatosensory cortical evoked potential studies (SEPs) following stimulation of the pudendal nerves proved useful in objectively documenting preoperative low sacral root involvement in a 33-year-old postlaminectomy patient, presenting with impending cauda equina syndrome and treated by piriformis muscle release with good clinical results. Preoperative(More)

U.S. Workers Compensation claims made by persons disabled in the upper extremities in 1989 were estimated to be $563 million. METHOD Through an investigation of factors that increase the likelihood of contracting(More)
OBJECTIVE This case series sought to determine the prevalence of ulnar neuropathy at the elbow (UNE) by using electrophysiologic criteria among all computer keyboard operators (CKOs) referred over a four-year period (1995-1999) for electrodiagnosis (EDX) due to clinical suspicion of focal upper limb neuropathies. PARTICIPANTS All CKOs referred to an EDX(More)
