covariates. Irregularities innerve conduction tests, which are frequently subclinical, appear to be the first objective quantitative indication of the condition(2). DPN severity is highly correlated with the severity and duration of diabetes mellitus(3). Chronic hyperglycemia and associated metabolic disorders are assumed to be involved in its pathogenesis(4). The initial effect of the degenerative process is thought to occur in the cutaneous nerve fiber endings(5). Sural nerve involvement is common in

Sonoelastic response of median nerve to rehabilitation in carpal tunnel syndrome

Introduction Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common type of neuropathy with a prevalence estimated at between 0.1–0.5%(1). The condition involves the entrapment of the median nerve under the flexor retinaculum, causing weakness, paresthesia and pain at the wrist and hand, and thus decreasing the quality of life. The severity of the disorder and effectiveness of any therapeutic intervention are typically determined by physical examination involving functional, performance and pain

Posterior interosseous nerve palsy caused by a ganglion: Conservative treatment with ultrasound-guided needle aspiration

Posterior interosseous nerve palsy caused by a ganglion is not common and most previous patients were treated with excisional surgery. We treated a case conservatively with needle aspiration using ultrasonography, after a nerve conduction study. A 77-year-old man presented with impaired active finger extension of the left metacarpophalangeal joints. The nerve conduction study revealed conduction block of the left radial nerve near the elbow. Ultrasonography demonstrated a hypoechoic mass

Dorsal scapular nerve entrapment neuropathy managed by ultrasound-guided hydrodissection – a case report

Introduction There are a myriad of causes for upper thoracic and medial scapular pain. Dorsal scapular nerve entrapment neuropathy (DSNEN) is a rare cause of this symptom(1,2). We report a case of dorsal scapular nerve entrapment neuropathy that was managed successfully with ultrasound-guided hydrodissection. Based on our knowledge, we believe this to be the first such case reported in the literature. Case report A 40-year-old male presented with 3 years’ history of unilateral localised pain

Palsy of the posterior interosseous nerve treated by targeted ultrasound-guided perineural hydrodissection

Introduction Palsy of the posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) is rare. The PIN is the terminal branch of the radial nerve and is principally a motor nerve. It has two main terminal branches: the medial recurrent branch and the lateral descending branch. Palsy of the descending branch of the PIN manifests the loss of function of the abductor policis longus, extensor pollicis brevis, extensor pollicis longus, and extensor indicis proprius. The management of an isolated PIN palsy remains

The variability in cross-sectional area (CSA) measurements is helpful in investigating pathologies of the peripheral nerves(3). The cross-sectional area (CSA) tends to be symmetrical in both lower limbs, and it is larger in the lower limb motor nerves than in the sensory nerves at similar sites(5). Recent imaging techniques allow for

Reference values for the cross-sectional area of normal radial nerve at two levels using high-resolution ultrasonography

Introduction Clinical and electrodiagnostic evaluations of peripheral nerves are widely used nowadays to assess the severity of trauma to the peripheral nerves. However, a major limitation is that these approaches are not able to determine the extent of damage to the nerve fibers in the first 6 weeks post trauma(1). Another disadvantage is that CT and MRI scans for neurographic studies are not always readily available and prove to be costly. High-resolution ultrasonography, on the other hand

Shear wave elastography in optic neuritis: diagnostic accuracy of the optic nerve and adjacent fat tissue values

Introduction Optic neuritis (ON) is defined as inflammation of the optic nerve. It is mostly idiopathic, but can be associated with variable causes (demyelinating lesions, autoimmune disorders, infectious and inflammatory conditions)(1,2). Patients occasionally experience unilateral loss of vision, periocular pain, and impaired color vision. The inflammatory process usually occurs in a portion of the retrobulbar optic nerve, so the optic disc might be normal in adults(3,4). Therefore, the

A higher risk of sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) in these patients has been widely discussed but could not be proven yet. The pathophysiology underlying ictal bradyarrhythmias is not entirely clear, however, a key role is attributed to an imbalance in the autonomic nerve system (Sforza et al., 2014). In patients with

The genus Deladenus (Thorne, 1941) belongs to the family Neotylenchidae (Thorne, 1941) with D. durus (Cobb, 1922; Thorne, 1941) as type species. It is characterized by the location of the esophageal-intestinal junction immediately behind the nerve ring, a median esophageal chamber sometimes present, and absence of a post-uterine sac. Two biological forms have been observed in this genus: the free-living form (mycetophagous stage) and the insect-parasitic form (infective stage). The

Improved Production of Recombinant Human β-NGF in Escherichia coli – a Bioreactor Scale Study

Human nerve growth factor β (β-NGF) is considered a major therapeutic agent for treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. We have previously reported the optimized conditions for β-NGF overproduction in Escherichia coli in a shake-flask culture. In this study the optimal %DO (dissolved oxygen) and post induction temperature values for improved production of β-NGF were found in the bioreactor scale using response surface methodology (RSM) as the most common statistical method. Also, for further

notch (SGN), glenohumeral joint degeneration, and glenohumeral joint synovitis. The SGN is formed lateral to where the spine extrudes from the scapula and corresponds to the site where the suprascapular nerve passes around the scapula. The nerve can be occasionally compressed at SGN by ganglia arising from the glenohumeral joint (e.g. due to glenoid-labral tears), possibly leading to infraspinatus and supraspinatus progressive fatty degeneration (Fig. 10).

When present, these neovessels predominate on the ventral side of the Achilles tendon (Fig. 2). There is evidence that nerve structures of the ventral paratendinous tissue related to the neovessels may be the source of pain in tendinopathy(23,24). Alfredson et al.(23) injected a local anesthetic ventral to the tendon in a cohort of affected individuals, achieving
