Classical textbooks and recent publications about the anatomy of the dorsal cutaneous branch of the ulnar nerve are revisited and correlated with methods of measurement of its conduction velocity, in order to evaluate the indications and limitations of the procedure. Etiology and pathogenesis of isolated lesions of this nerve branch are discussed.
UNLABELLED The objective of this study was to evaluate if the ratio of ulnar sensory nerve action potential (SNAP) over compound muscle action potential (CMAP) amplitudes (USMAR) would help in the distinction between ganglionopathy (GNP) and polyneuropathy (PNP). METHODS We reviewed the nerve conductions studies and electromyography (EMG) of 18 GNP(More)
We analyzed the experience of Unicamp Clinical Hospital with plasma exchange (PE) therapy in myasthenia gravis (MG). About 17.8 % of a totality of MG patients had PE performed: 26 cases, 19 women and seven men. The mean age-onset of MG was 28 years, extremes 11 and 69. Minimum deficit observed in the group was graded IIb (O & G) or IIIa (MGFA scale). One(More)
We investigated the reference values of the dorsal ulnar cutaneous nerve (DUC) sensory nerve conduction (SNC) in 66 healthy individuals. Measurements were processed using stimulating electrodes positioned between the ulnar bone and the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle, 11-13 cm proximal to the active electrode recording. Superficial recording electrodes were(More)
Parkinsonism is a complication of some viral encephalitis,1 and poliovirus infection is a possible risk factor for late development of Parkinson disease (PD).2 There are several reports of PD arising in adults who had poliomyelitis (PM) as children,2 and pathologic specimens from fatal PM cases disclosed substantia nigra (SN) damage.3 In this setting, we(More)
Ganglionopathies (GNP), also known as sensory neuronopathies, are a group of conditions characterized by primary and selective damage to the dorsal root ganglia (DRG) of the spinal cord and sensory nuclei of the brainstem1,2. The etiologies are diverse and include immune-mediated diseases, vitamin deficiencies, drug toxicity, paraneoplastic syndromes and(More)
UNLABELLED There are few papers devoted to geriatric Guillain-Barré (GBS) and many related issues remain unanswered. OBJECTIVE To describe clinical, electrophysiological and therapeutic features in this age. METHOD Clinico-epidemiological data and therapy of GBS patients older than 60 years were reviewed. Hughes scores were used to quantify neurological(More)
