Neurophysiological comparison between the Sit-to-Stand test with the 6-Minute Walk test in individuals with COPD.
We found neurophysiological correlation between both tests which enabled us to suggest that SST may determine functional status as easily as the 6MWT in regard to neurophysiological effectiveness....
Evaluation of effectiveness of local insulin injection in none insulin dependent diabetic patient with carpal tunnel syndrome.
We aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of local insulin injection on the median nerve in patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) who have mild-to-moderate carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). We carried out a prospective, randomized, single-blind, case-controlled study in these patien...
Neuropathy patterns differ in patients with diabetic complications.
We compared clinical and electrophysiological characteristics of PNP localizations/recurrences of foot ulcers, and diabetic dermopathy (DD) between sexes. Eighty-eight diabetic patients (44 men, 44 women) had an evaluation regarding detailed history of their diseases, lesion-related data, and clinic...
eToims twitch relief method in chronic refractory myofascial pain (CRMP).
CRMP management involves electrical stimulation of motor points. To demonstrate that Electrical Twitch-Obtaining Intramuscular Stimulation (eToims) using ET127 system for noninvasive motor point stimulation is safe and efficacious in CRMP management. Longitudinal observation of consecutive self-pay...
Influences of the position of the head on posture while lifting.
In clinical training of some lower back pain patients, teaching them to control their lumbar lordosis during lifting may be difficult. Therefore, another effective method for lifting technique is required. In standing, head cannot move without some compensating postural adjustment. The purpose of th...
False positive rate of thoracic outlet syndrome diagnostic maneuvers.
We aim to determine the false-positive rate & specificity in normal subjects and carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) patients of five provocative maneuvers used to diagnose thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS). We prospectively evaluated subjects with clinical and electrophysiological evidence of CTS as well as...
The influence of the reference electrode in recording F-waves.
To demonstrate that many tibial F-waves can be recorded with the tendon electrode and to declare the importance of the "reference" electrode in F-wave recording. In eight lower extremities of four healthy subjects, tibial and fibular F-waves were recorded with the belly and tendon electrodes separat...
Electromyographic evaluation of the masseter and temporal muscles activity in volunteers submitted to acupuncture.
To assess the effect of acupuncture on the temporal and masseter muscles activity employing surface electromyography. Thirty volunteers were evaluated according to three groups of acupuncture application: selected local points, selected points at distance and association of local and distant points....
Clinical and electrophysiological presentation of pronator syndrome.
We sought to evaluate the clinical/electrophysiological parameters of this focal neuropathy. Between 1992 and 2002, we retrospectively reviewed records of eighty-three limbs in seventy-two patients with PS. Electrodiagnostic data as well as clinical symptoms, physical findings, demographic informati...
Epileptic seizures followed by nonepileptic manifestations: a video-EEG diagnosis.
To present and discuss a case of a woman who for many years was presumed to have nonepileptic seizures (NES), but proved to actually have both electrical and non-electrical seizures, the latter occurring in a close temporal association with the former. To also discuss the seimiology her true as well...
