The library of 100 publications, spanning the use of Avance Nerve Graft and the Axoguard family of products, includes: Research from nearly 300 surgeon and clinical investigators; More than 90 independent non-sponsored papers, which highlights growing surgeon interest and acceptance of the Axogen portfolio of products; Repair of digital nerves in 37 publications and repair of mixed and motor nerves
in 29 publications, with consistent results in short and long gap nerve injuries and sensory, mixed and motor nerve
repairs; 18 publications in oral and maxillofacial reconstruction, a growing surgical application; and Six publications featuring data reports from the RANGER Study, with an 85% overall meaningful recovery rate across all nerve repairs in the study.
The protocol recommended by Preston and Shapiro for EDX evaluation of a suspected RNI was followed.6 NCS were performed by two operators, who were qualified physiatrists, using surface electrodes to assess sensory and motor nerves
of the upper extremities.
Also, the pulsing sequences are designed to preferentially excite motor nerves
rather than sensory nerves.
The nerves tested were the peroneal and tibial motor nerves
and the sural (Sensory) nerve in the right leg and the median and ulnar motor and sensory nerves in the right arm.
According to Pear Video via South China Morning Post last July 24, Wang's wife, whose name wasn't given, was diagnosed with motor neurone disease five years ago, an affliction that degenerates one's motor nerves
and weakens the body's muscles.
Tetanospasmin, for example, enters the motor nerves
and surges back up them to the spinal cord where it inhibits motor nerve
Thus, terminal communications between motor nerves
may provide muscles with double motor innervation, and are important for motor innervation of the hand, particularly thenar muscles.
Regional officials said in the emergency statement, "Eating fugu liver can paralyze motor nerves
, and in a serious case cause respiratory arrest leading to death."
conduction velocities (MNCVs) were not evoked in the distal lower limbs, while very low amplitudes of compound motor action potential and mildly decreased MNCVs in the other motor nerves
In the case of cramp-sensitive skeletal muscles, individual motor nerves
in the spinal cord control the contraction of hundreds or--in large muscles such as the quadriceps and gastrocnemius muscles--over one thousand individual muscle fibers.
Previous findings of our research group show that adenosine [A.sub.2A] receptors play a pivotal role in motor nerves
, favoring muscarinic [M.sub.2] inhibition by breaking [M.sub.1] receptor counteractions caused by downstream signaling involving activation of protein kinase A (PKA) and [Ca.sup.++] level in the motor nerve
(Oliveira & Sa, 2005).
If the motor nerves
to the small foot muscles are affected then the foot may develop a high arch with clawed toes.
