OBJECTIVE To investigate metabolic changes within the spinal cord using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H-MRS) and determine their relationship with clinical function in patients with complete brachial plexus avulsion who underwent reimplantation of the ventral roots. METHODS Single-voxel (1)H-MRS of the cord between C1 and C3 was performed in 10 patients with normal spinal cord on MRI, who underwent reimplantation of C5 to T1 ventral roots on average 5.5 years earlier, and 19… CONTINUE READING
