A total of 103 patients (40 with pure sensory disturbances, 63 with sensory and motor deficits) with 'ulnar nerve lesions at the elbow were examined neurophysiologically. The measurement of motor conduction velocity across the cubital tunnel alone did not completely localize the lesion. The latency to an ulnar-innervated flexor muscle was of outstanding(More)
Sympathetic skin response (SSR) was investigated in 60 normal subjects (mean age 37.7 +/- 15.9) and 30 patients (mean age 47.2 +/- 12.0) referred from the department of urology for further electrophysiological evaluation of erectile dysfunction (ED). SSR was present in all normal subjects. Mean latency in the lower extremities was 2.16 +/- 0.20 sec. The(More)
Electrophysiological results of sural nerve conduction studies were compared with quantitative histological data from the same nerve in 27 patients with alcoholic neuropathy. Diminution of amplitude and/or conduction velocity of the main component was seen in 14 nerves. Minimum nerve conduction velocity, which was studied in 11 nerves, was lowered in eight(More)
Blink reflexes elicited by electrical stimulation of the supraorbital nerves, by monoaurally presented 1 kHz sine wave bursts of 20-ms duration, and by flashes of light presented monocularly were investigated in 32 healthy controls. Absolute latencies of the individual components and side differences were measured. An outline of possible anatomical pathways(More)
A peculiar form of chronic spinal muscular atrophy is described, 5 unrelated young males developed muscle wasting of the left shoulder and upper arm region, mainly in the distribution of myotomes C5 and C6. This muscle atrophy remained confined to the primary site for 13-18 years, being followed in 4 cases by a mild muscle atrophy of the right upper arm or(More)
Slow conducted components of sensory nerve action potentials were investigated in median and in sural nerves of controls and in patients with peripheral nerve diseases. In the normal group the slow components showed no relation to age which is in contrast to the maximum velocity. In both the median nerve and sural nerve of about 20% of the patients with(More)
Quantitative histometric investigations were made in 6 radial and in 12 sural nerves of subjects without signs of a neuromuscular disorder. Nerve conduction velocities and amplitudes were studied on the same nerves. A linear relationship between the nerve fibre diameter and the conduction velocity of the fastest fibres was found. The conversion factor had a(More)
The bulbocavernosus reflex (BCR) was examined in 39 normal potent men and in 252 patients with impaired potency of varying aetiology. For BCR evaluation minimum, maximum and mean latencies, the temporal dispersion in ten successive responses, together with minimum and maximum side differences from simultaneous recordings of the left and right(More)
