BACKGROUND Neuropathic pain caused by peripheral nerve injury is a chronic disorder that represents a significant clinical challenge because the pathological mechanisms have not been fully elucidated. Several studies have suggested the involvement of various sodium channels, including tetrodotoxin-resistant NaV1.8, in affected dorsal root ganglion (DRG)(More)
Painful peripheral neuropathy is a significant clinical problem; however, its pathological mechanism and effective treatments remain elusive. Increased peripheral expression of tetrodotoxin-resistant voltage-gated sodium channel 1.8 (NaV1.8) has been shown to associate with chronic pain symptoms in humans and experimental animals. Sciatic nerve entrapment(More)
OBJECTIVE Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common sleep breathing disorder. Untreated OSA may lead to a number of cardiovascular complications. Dentists may play an important role in OSA detection by conducting careful oral examinations. This study focused on the correlation of oral anatomical features in Thai patients who presented with OSA. METHODS We(More)
The superior head of the human lateral pterygoid muscle (SHLP) has been classically considered to have functions that are independent of the inferior head of the lateral pterygoid (IHLP). Recent evidence however suggests that some of the functional properties of the SHLP are similar to those of the IHLP. The aim was to determine whether the functional(More)
There is controversy as to the jaw tasks for which the superior head of the human lateral pterygoid muscle (SHLP) becomes active. The aim was to describe the functional activities of SHLP single motor units (SMUs) during horizontal isometric force tasks. In 11 subjects, 48 SMUs were recorded from computer-tomography-verified SHLP sites during generation of(More)
