Frequency-dependent conduction block in ulnar neuropathy localized to the elbow.


OBJECTIVE To determine whether frequency-dependent conduction block (FDB) occurs in acute ulnar neuropathies localized to the elbow. METHODS High-frequency nerve stimulation (30Hz, 20 stimuli) was applied to the ulnar motor nerve above and below the elbow in controls (15) and in patients with short duration (between 2 and 16 weeks) ulnar neuropathy… (More)
