Gastrocnemius muscle biopsies from 28 patients with chronic renal failure were analyzed with a light microscope after staining with Gomori trichrome stain and after histochemical reactions for ATPase and NADH diaphorase. Nineteen (68%) of the biopsies were pathological. Uremic myopathy was seen in eleven (39%) of the biopsies, eight of which were obtained from subjects on regular hemodialysis. Pure myopathic muscle damage was observed in three (11%), both myopathic and neuropathic muscle damage… CONTINUE READING
