Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 29-year-old man who sustained deep partial and full-thickness burns. After his admission, debridement was performed, followed by escharotomy of arms, legs, right thigh, and right leg. The man regained consciousness 30 days after the injury. Unfortunately, repeat radiographic examination revealed ossification of the medial part of both quadriceps muscles. It also discusses heterotopic ossification, peroneal nerve compression, and severe burn injury.

    We examined incidental injury of peroneal nerve in normal Japanese population by nerve conduction study (NCS). Peroneal motor NCS including F-wave study was performed in 126 healthy Japanese volunteers. During F-wave study we investigated A-waves. The peroneal NCS of 54 cases (43%) showed one or...

    Background: Injuries to the deep peroneal nerve result in tibialis anterior muscle paralysis and associated loss of ankle dorsiflexion. Nerve grafting of peroneal nerve injuries has led to poor function; therefore, tendon transfers and ankle-foot orthotics have been the standard treatment for...

    Background: Evaluation of analgesics in large animals is a necessary step in the development of better pain medications or gene therapy prior to clinical trials. However, chronic neuropathic pain models in large animals are limited. To address this deficiency, we developed a neuropathic pain...
