INTRODUCTION: In young patients with mononeuropathy who lack family history and precipitating factors, hereditary neuropathy with liability to pressure palsy (HNPP) may be a possibility. Our objective is to propose neurophysiological criteria for HNPP in patients aged <30 years. METHODS: We conducted a national multicenter retrospective clinical and neurophysiological study in patients under 30 with genetically confirmed HNPP. RESULTS: All of the 51 included patients had at least 1 demyelinating pattern in 2 asymptomatic nerves, and 3 abnormalities were found in almost 90%, including slowed motor nerve conduction velocity across the elbow in at least 1 ulnar nerve (97...

INTRODUCTION: Effects of low-threshold afferents from the brachioradialis (BR) on excitabilities of triceps brachii (TB) motor neurons in humans were examined. METHODS: We evaluated the effects using a post-stimulus time-histogram (PSTH) and electromyogram-averaging (EMG-A) methods in thirteen healthy human subjects. Electrical conditioning stimulation to the radial nerve branch innervating BR with the intensity below the motor threshold was delivered. RESULTS: In the PSTH study, the stimulation produced a trough (inhibition) in 36/69 TB motor units for all the subjects...

INTRODUCTION: Neuromuscular clinical manifestations during acute West Nile virus (WNV) infection are well documented; however, long-term neurological outcomes still require investigation. METHODS: We conducted a long-term follow up study in patients with history of WNV infection. Out of 117 patients who participated in neurologic and neurocognitive evaluations, 30 patients were referred for neuromuscular and electrodiagnostic evaluation based on abnormal findings...

INTRODUCTION: Acellular nerve allografts (ANAs) yield less consistent favorable outcomes compared to autografts for long gap reconstructions. We evaluated whether a hybrid ANA can improve 6cm gap reconstruction. METHODS: Rat sciatic nerve was transected and repaired with either 6cm hybrid or control ANAs. Hybrid ANAs were generated using a 1cm cellular isograft between 2.5cm ANAs, while control ANAs had no isograft. Outcomes were assessed by graft gene and marker expression (n=4; at 4 weeks) and motor recovery and nerve histology (n=10; at 20 weeks)...

INTRODUCTION: X-linked myotubular myopathy (XLMTM), a devastating pediatric disease caused by the absence of the protein myotubularin, results from mutations in the MTM1 gene. While there is no cure for XLMTM, we previously reported effects of MTM1 gene therapy using adeno-associated viral (AAV) vector on muscle weakness and pathology in MTM1-mutant dogs. Here, we followed 2 AAV-infused dogs over 4 years. METHODS: We evaluated gait, strength, respiration, neurological function, muscle pathology, AAV vector copy number (VCN), and transgene expression...

INTRODUCTION: In this study we investigated the effects of resistance training with vibration in combination with leg compression to restrict blood flow on strength, muscle oxygenation, muscle mass, and bone formation. METHODS: Twelve participants were tested before and after 12 weeks of resistance training with application of vibration (VIBRA; 1-2 mm, 30 Hz) to both legs and compression (∼35 mm Hg, VIBRA+COMP) to only 1 leg. RESULTS: VIBRA+COMP and VIBRA improved 1 repetition maximum (1-RM), increased the number of repetitions preceding muscle exhaustion, enhanced cortical bone mass, and lowered the mass and fat fraction in the thigh, with no changes in total muscle mass...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of high intensity resistance circuit (HIRC) and traditional strength training (TST) on neuromuscular fatigue and metabolic responses. METHODS: Twelve trained young subjects performed HIRC and TST in a counterbalanced order with 1 week rest in-between. The amount of workload and the inter-set time for each local muscle group were matched (180 s), however, the time between successive exercises differed...

INTRODUCTION: We investigated the effects of aerobic and resistance exercise in patients with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP). METHODS: Eighteen CIDP patients treated with subcutaneous immunoglobulin performed 12 weeks of aerobic exercise and 12 weeks of resistance exercise after a run-in period of 12 weeks without exercise. Three times weekly the participants performed aerobic exercise on an ergometer bike or resistance exercise with unilateral training of knee and elbow flexion/extension...

INTRODUCTION: We evaluated the effect of electromyostimulation (EMS) on myosin heavy chain (MHC) isoform expression in denervated muscles to determine the optimal timing for EMS application. METHODS: EMS was initiated on post-injury Day 1 for the group with denervation receiving immediate EMS (DIEMS) and on post-injury Day 15 for the group with denervation receiving delayed EMS (DDEMS) in rat denervated muscles. Muscle wet weight and muscle fiber cross-sectional area (FCSA) were measured...

INTRODUCTION: In the precise localization of ulnar neuropathy at the elbow (UNE) we have noted discrepancies between electrodiagnostic (EDx) and ultrasonographic (US) findings. We aimed to explore the relationship between the 2 methods. METHODS: Four study-blind examiners took a history and performed neurologic, EDx, and US examinations of a group of prospectively recruited patients with UNE. They assessed the relationship between ulnar nerve cross-sectional area (CSA) and motor nerve conduction velocity (MNCV)...

INTRODUCTION: In this study we evaluated the frequency and further assessment of extraneural findings encountered during peripheral nerve ultrasound (US). METHODS: Our retrospective review identified 278 peripheral nerve US examinations of 229 patients performed between December 2014 and December 2015. Reports were reviewed to assess the number of studies without peripheral nerve abnormalities and the frequency and further assessment of extraneural findings. RESULTS: A total of 107 peripheral nerve US examinations of 90 patients (49 men and 41 women, mean age 55 ± 16 years) did not report peripheral nerve abnormalities...
