(SN) courses from the posterior aspect of leg to the lateral side of ankle and foot.
Given that there is no literature on normal thresholds for the sural nerve
, we assumed that the lateral border of the foot would have a similar threshold as the plantar side of the foot, determined in previous studies as 2g (FIN 4-31).
The sural nerve
biopsies from the eight patients (except patient 9) showed variable pathological changes [Figure 2] and [Figure 3].
Raised serum levels of IL-6 and IL-10 correlated with reduced amplitude of sural nerve
SNAP and common peroneal nerve CMAP.
However, sural nerve
amplitude (SNAP) was the only parameter that showed significant variation with highest value being recorded during luteal phase (Tables 5 and 6).
Conduction Results in Leprosy Patients Sural Nerve
This may lead to confounding attribution of recovery of sensory responses to improvement in sural nerve
(a sensory branch of the sciatic nerve) regeneration instead of collateral reinnervation by the undamaged saphenous nerve (a sensory branch form the femoral nerve) (Cobianchi et al.).
The fibre size and content of the radial and sural nerves
The sural nerve
then acts as a scaffolding (conduit), similar to an extension cord, to deliver regenerating nerve fibres from the femoral nerve to the corpus cavernosa.
In one-way ANOVA test, comparison of mean SNCV of Ulnar nerve, Median nerve and Sural nerve
between control Group and two groups of cases (PEM Grade 1&2 and PEM Grade 3 & 4) was statistically significant (P<0.05) in all the three age groups.
On applying t-test, the assumption of equal variances was violated in cases as shown by Levene's test for the following variables: NCV (median and ulnar nerve) and amplitude (sural nerve
Facial nerve repair is achieved by reanastomosis of the severed ends or, in cases with significant loss of nerve tissue, cable grafts using the great auricular nerve, the sural nerve
or the cervical plexus as donor sites (4).
