  • communicates
  • A nerve cell communicates information to distant targets by sending electrical signals down a long, thin part of the cell called the axon. (nih.gov)
  • proteins
  • Although different proteins are abnormal in different forms of CMT disease, all of the mutations affect the normal function of the peripheral nerves. (nih.gov)
  • entrapment
  • These studies, in conjunction with the physical examination and correlation to a set of normative values, assist the electromyographer in diagnosing a multitude of nerve disorders, including entrapment neuropathies, brachial plexopathies, and polyneuropathies. (medscape.com)
  • An MRI may show nerve entrapment, but it has limitations. (mayfieldclinic.com)
  • In such cases, the test can help clarify what the problem is, although usually, unless the nerve problem is a common entrapment (site of compression), other tests may be required to ascertain the exact nature of the problem. (sydneynorthneurology.com.au)
  • diagnosis
  • Definitive diagnosis of neurosarcoidosis requires the exclusion of other causes of neuropathy and the identification of noncaseating sarcoid granulomas by histologic analysis of nerve and muscle biopsy specimens. (medscape.com)
  • Clinical
  • Aziz Shaibani,MD, FACP, FAAN is Clinical Professor of Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine and the Director of the Nerve and Muscle Center of Texas. (oup.com)
  • fibers
  • While small nerve fibers cannot be accurately tested, middle and large nerves will demonstrate changes in transmission times and rhythm. (healthtap.com)
  • Onset latency is the time it takes for the stimulus to initiate an evoked potential and reflects the conduction along the fastest fibers. (medscape.com)
  • They can tell us how fast and how well nerves are transmitting information, and can provide objective data as to the extent of neuromuscular involvement from affected muscle fibers themselves. (progressivespineandsports.com)
  • proximal
  • Proximal and distal nerve segments may be tested separately to help identify and localize the cause of the patient s condition. (docplayer.net)
  • patients
  • Based on the information gleaned from these muscle and nerve studies (conveniently performed in-house at our Ramsey office), our interdisciplinary pain management team can devise customized treatment plans to meet the specific needs of individual patients. (progressivespineandsports.com)
  • The team at our URMC Electromyography and Nerve Conduction (EMG) Lab provides comprehensive and detailed services for both adult and pediatric patients that are not available anywhere else in the region. (rochester.edu)
  • I was asked to present this topic to colleagues who specialize in neurosurgical procedures for pain and nerve problems because we frequently encounter patients who are very complex," said Dr. Gilmer. (spineuniverse.com)
  • neuropathies
  • For generalized neuropathies, EMG provides important information about the type of nerves affected, the part of the nerve fiber affected, whether the neuropathy is inherited or acquired, whether it is likely to be inflammatory and open to various therapies, as well as its severity and prognosis.
