Potassium ion channel blockade restores conduction in heat-injured nerve and spinal nerve roots.


Compound action potentials were recorded in vitro from rat peroneal and sural nerves and from dorsal and ventral roots of the cauda equina before and after radiofrequency heating of 5-mm-length segments of these nerves to 41 to 45 degrees C. The heating was continued for intervals sufficient to reduce response amplitude by 50%. Inflection velocity… (More)
