INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to determine whether F-waves reveal electrophysiological features of anterior horn cells in polio survivors. METHODS Forty-three polio survivors and 20 healthy controls underwent motor nerve conduction studies of the median and tibial nerves bilaterally, including sampling of F-waves elicited by 100 stimuli and the determination of motor unit number estimation (MUNE). RESULTS A significant increase in abnormally stereotyped ("repeater") F-waves and… CONTINUE READING
