An electromyography and nerve conduction studies of Cranial Nerve VII and its innervated
muscles revealed severe active denervation in the left frontalis muscle and severe partial denervation in the procerus muscle.
Smile reconstruction in adults with free muscle transfer innervated
by the masseter motor nerve: Effectiveness and cerebral adaptation.
Although similar in appearance, 2 different functional types were reported: aporous (usually large) with mechanoreceptory function and tip-pores that are innervated
with additional chemosensory (mostly gustatory) neurons.
At further stages of the condition, in situations when the nerve experiences severe compression, in thenar region pain and power and skill loss arise in hands and tenar region (in abductor pollisis brevis and opponens brevis muscles innervated
by motor branch of median nerve) atrophy is seen.
TN is a clinical condition characterized by debilitating pain in regions of the face innervated
by one or more divisions of the trigeminal nerve.
The hand, experts say, is amazingly complex, with 35-38 muscles and 22 joints all working together, innervated
by three nerves between the elbow and fingertip.
This provides a strong control of tissue development, potentially allowing for the engineering of the vascularized and innervated
tissue from a single cell source, as will be investigated in this project.
Based on assessment with the American Spinal Injury Association Impairment Scale (AIS) (3) during her initial examination, the last fully innervated
spinal level for both sensory and motor function was C8 AIS B, indicating absent motor function but intact sensation below the level of injury; however, this result was questionable initially due to inconsistent responses during the exam.
found that thoracolumbar fascia was deficiently innervated
, Yahia et al.
49) Generally, the anteriormedial portion of the capsule is innervated
by the branches of the obturator nerve, anterolateral capsule branches of the femoral nerve, posteromedial joint from branches of the sciatic nerve, and/or nerve to quadratus femoris, superolateral (posterior and anterior) from branches of the superior gluteal nerve.
Reconstruction was performed with bilateral sensate pedicled ALT flaps innervated
by the lateral femoral cutaneous nerves.
Overall, the investigators recommend exploration of the nerve if no recovery is noted after 3 to 4 months, although useful recovery could still be obtained at up to 14 months post-injury due to the relatively short distance between the lesion and innervated
