INTRODUCTION Fibrillation potentials are an accepted electrical marker of muscle denervation that occur in axonal nerve injury. Clinically, they are used to determine the type of, and prognosis for nerve injuries. The time of occurrence after nerve injury plays a critical role in clinical decision making. This study explores the evolution of the generally accepted guideline that fibrillation potentials occur 1 to 4 weeks after axonal nerve injury. METHODS Pubmed, Ovid, and EMBASE, and current… CONTINUE READING
