BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE MR changes in denervated muscles have been reported to occur within days up to several weeks after peripheral nerve damage. The purpose of this experimental study was to investigate the longitudinal changes in denervated muscles by using MR imaging. METHODS In 12 Lewis rats, the left sciatic nerve was transected at the level of the proximal thigh. MR imaging of both legs was performed before and 1 hour, 24 hours, 48 hours, 7 days, 14 days, 28 days, and 2 months after… CONTINUE READING
