Gene context of Nerve Compression Syndromes

  • We have analyzed the ultrastructural and histopathological changes that occur during experimental chronic nerve entrapment, as well as the immunohistochemical expression of chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan (CSPG) [3].
  • Sixteen patients with nerve entrapment had higher incidence of coma and muscle swelling than the rest of the patients [20].
  • Thus, EMG abnormalities were present in many MS patients with no concurrent peripheral or entrapment neuropathies [21].
  • Morton's metatarsalgia. Light and electron microscopic observations and their relation to entrapment neuropathies [22].
