Multifocal Motor Neuropathy With Cranial Nerve Involvement and Vocal Cord Paralysis: A Case Report.

Cureus 2022 May 21;14(5):e25179. Epub 2022 May 21.

Department of Neuroscience, University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center, Quezon City, PHL.

Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) is a progressive, multifocal weakness, which typically begins and predominates in the upper extremities with the absence of a sensory deficit and a hallmark electrophysiologic finding of conduction block. We describe a case of an adult male with MMN who developed both cranial nerve involvement and vocal cord paralysis. The patient presented with left shoulder weakness without sensory loss followed by hoarseness of voice and later developed tongue deviation and wasting of the left sternocleidomastoid and left trapezius muscle.

Nerve Echogenicity in Polyneuropathies of Various Etiologies-Results of a Retrospective Semi-Automatic Analysis of High-Resolution Ultrasound Images.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2022 May 28;12(6). Epub 2022 May 28.

Department of Neurology, St. Josef-Hospital, Ruhr-University Bochum, 44791 Bochum, Germany.

Echogenicity of peripheral nerves in high-resolution ultrasound (HRUS) provides insight into the structural damage of peripheral nerves in various polyneuropathies. The aim of this study was to compare nerve echogenicity in different primarily axonal or demyelinating polyneuropathies to examine the significance of this parameter. Performing semi-automated echogenicity analysis and applying Image J, we retrospectively used HRUS images of 19 patients with critical illness polyneuropathy (CIP), and 27 patients with chemotherapy-induced polyneuropathy (CIN) and compared them to 20 patients with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP).

Necrotic Granulomatous Inflammation after Use of Small Intestine Submucosa Matrix for Recurrent Compression Neuropathy.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2022 Jun 14;10(6):e4378. Epub 2022 Jun 14.

Charleston Area Medical Center, Charleston, W.Va.

Various techniques exist for treating recurrent carpal and ulnar tunnel syndrome, but AxoGuard nerve wrap has shown promising results for treatment of compression neuropathies when used in conjunction with neurolysis and tenosynovectomy. Prior results demonstrate no safety concerns, and there have not been any reported cases of infection, persistent inflammation, or recurrent perineural fibrosis. A 41-year-old, right-hand-dominant woman experienced repeated bouts of carpal and ulnar tunnel syndromes, which were treated with a small intestine submucosa matrix wrap around the median and ulnar nerves in the wrist.

Submuscular transposition of the ulnar nerve for persistent or recurrent cubital tunnel syndrome: Results of a prospective case series.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2022 Apr 28. Epub 2022 Apr 28.

Department of Neurosurgery, Haaglanden Medical Center, The Hague, the Netherlands.

Background: Submuscular transposition (SMT) of the ulnar nerve is frequently performed as secondary procedure in patients with persistent or recurrent cubital tunnel syndrome (CuTS) despite previous surgery.

A novel method to measure sensory nerve conduction of the posterior antebrachial cutaneous nerve.

Muscle Nerve 2022 May 26. Epub 2022 May 26.

Department of Neurology, Kawasaki Medical School, Okayama, Japan.

Introduction/aims: Posterior antebrachial cutaneous (PABC) nerve conduction studies could be useful for distinguishing PABC neuropathy from C7 radiculopathy. In the conventional method using an antidromic method, the sensory nerve action potential (SNAP) is sometimes followed by a large volume-conducted motor potential. In this report we describe a reliable nerve conduction study using an orthodromic method for recording SNAPs of the PABC nerve. Read More
