  • conduction
  • Because conduction velocity is proportional to axon diameter, the conduction velocity of the sciatic nerve neurons also varies widely, from 0.2 to 150 m sec -1 . (unm.edu)
  • A recent study published in the Neural Regeneration Research (Vol. 8, No. 27, 2013) showed that after propofol was injected into the injured sciatic nerve of mice, nuclear factor kappa B expression in the L4-6 segments of the spinal cord in the injured side was reduced, apoptosis was decreased, nerve myelin defects were alleviated, and the nerve conduction block was lessened.

  • A neurologist has diagnosed me with severe sciatic nerve palsy after performing a nerve conduction study and a partial EMG. (healthboards.com)
  • femoral
  • Bernese periacetabular osteotomy resulted in major nerve deficits in the sciatic or femoral nerves in 2.1% of 1760 patients, of whom approximately half experienced complete recovery within a mean of 5.5 months. (wikipedia.org)
  • Bulging
  • A pinched sciatic nerve usually results from one of two major causes: a bulging disk in your spinal column pressing on the nerve, or a pinched sciatic nerve itself causing you pain. (hubpages.com)
  • Sometimes a bulging disc will require back surgery to repair, but many other times being gentle on your back and letting a few weeks pass will be enough for the nucleus to pull back into the disc and alleviate any pinched sciatic nerve pressure. (hubpages.com)
  • Another reason you might have sciatica is that something else besides a bulging spinal disk is putting pressure on your sciatic nerve. (hubpages.com)
  • Most pinched sciatic nerves can heal on their own, but bulging and especially herniated, or completely punctured, spinal discs may need to be treated in surgery. (hubpages.com)
  • travels
  • The nerve travels in the posterior compartment of the thigh behind (superficial to) the adductor magnus muscle , and is itself in front of (deep to) the long head of the biceps femoris muscle . (wikipedia.org)
