In 4 patients with a complete upper limb palsy due to traumatic cervical root avulsion, surgical anastomosis of intercostal to musculocutaneous nerves was performed to restore function in the biceps brachii muscle. Four to 6 months after the operation, motor unit discharges were recorded from the biceps muscle on the operated side during deep breathing and by cortical magnetic stimulation. The motor unit discharges became independent from respirations gradually over 1 to 2 years. The latencies… CONTINUE READING
