STUDY DESIGN A retrospective study. OBJECTIVE This study investigated the pathophysiology of compressive cervical myelopathy (CCM) with prolonged central motor conduction time (CMCT) in the upper limbs (ULs) rather than lower limbs (LLs) and prolonged CMCT at the thoracic level (TL). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Earlier reports indicated the usefulness of CMCT to assess preoperative CCM severity. However, little information exists on patients with prolonged CMCT-UL rather than CMCT-LL and… CONTINUE READING
