    Focuses on a study which examined three cases of ulnar neuropathy in which routine ulnar sensory recordings were normal, but motor recordings and inching technique illustrated electrophysiologic findings of condition block at the elbow. Materials and methods; Results and discussion; Conclusion.

  • Delayed recovery of ulnar neuropathy due to elbow warming.  // Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry;Sep2005, Vol. 76 Issue 9, p1268 

    The article presents a case of delayed recovery of ulnar neuropathy due to elbow warming. A 26 year old student presented clinically with a right ulnar sensory neuropathy, thought to have resulted from compression at the elbow during late night studying. Nerve conduction studies confirmed marked...

    Presents a medicolegal review of perioperative ulnar neuropathies in Canada. Factors attributed to perioperative ulnar neuropathies; Ulnar nerve damage during the postoperative period; Lack of basis for a claim against medical or nursing staff or hospitals.

  • A CASE OF DISTAL ULNAR NERVE VARIATION - PRESENCE OF SENSORY LOOP AROUND THE HOOK OF THE HAMATE BONE. Angelov, Alexander K.; Jelev, Lazar // Revista Argentina de Anatomía Clínica;2014, Vol. 6 Issue 2, p95 

    Ulnar nerve variations in the wrist are rare but still have clinical importance. In the course of a routine dissection of the right hand of a 67-y-old Caucasian male cadaver an aberrant ulnar nerve at the wrist was found. Its superficial branch bifurcated and formed a complete loop around the...

  • NERVE CONDUCTION STUDY AMONG HEALTHY MALAYS. THE INFLUENCE OF AGE, HEIGHT AND BODY MASS INDEX ON MEDIAN, ULNAR, COMMON PERONEAL AND SURAL NERVES. Awang, Mohamed Saufi; Abdulla, Jafri Malin; Abdullah, Mohd Rusli; Tharakan, John; Prasad, Atul; Husin, Zabidi Azhar; Hussin, Ahmad Munawir; Tahir, Adnan; Razak, Salmi Abdul // Malaysian Journal of Medical Sciences;Jul2006, Vol. 13 Issue 2, p19 

    Nerve conduction study is essential in the diagnosis of focal neuropathies and diffuse polyneuropathies. Age, height and body mass index (BMI) can affect nerve velocities as reported by previous studies. We studied the effect of these factors on median, ulnar, common peroneal and sural nerves...
