OBJECTIVE To assess the number and properties of motor units in an upper and lower limb muscle (tibialis anterior [TA] and first dorsal interosseous [FDI]) in human diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN) using decomposition-based quantitative electromyography (DQEMG). METHODS DQEMG protocols were performed in the TA and FDI of 12 patients with confirmed diabetes mellitus and associated DPN, as well as 12 age-matched control participants. Maximal dorsiflexion strength was also assessed using a… CONTINUE READING
