  • The presence of high titers of antibodies to GM1 ganglioside can also be useful for confirming the diagnosis of MMN, but are only present in 20-60% of patients, and are rarely present in ALS patients, underscoring the importance of clinical suspicion[mmcneuro.wordpress.com]
  • Clinical Presentation Radial nerve entrapment commonly occurs in patients who participate in occupational and recreational activities. Patients that present with symptoms of radial tunnel syndrome (RTS) can be difficult to evaluate.[cancertherapyadvisor.com]

  • Nerve Palsy Radial Nerve Saturday Night Forward Radial paralysis (aka wrist drop) (saturday night palsy): Injury to any part of radial nerve resulting in flaccid paralysis.[pinterest.co.uk]

Workup

  • Diagnosis The workup for wrist drop frequently includes nerve conduction velocity studies to isolate and confirm the radial nerve as the source of the problem. Plain films can help identify bone spurs and fractures that may have injured the nerve.[bionity.com]
  • […] on extension posterior interosseous nerve lesion Weakness of triceps, finger extensors and flexors c7,8 lesion General weakness of upper limb marked in deltoid, triceps, wrist extension and finger extension corticospinal lesion Diagnosis [ edit ] The workup[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Diagnostic Workup Once the practitioner suspects RTS, the most specific test used to identify its presence is the administration of a local corticosteroid into the radial tunnel with relief of symptoms.[cancertherapyadvisor.com]

  • Last updated June 15, 2017 The treatment and prognosis of Radial Nerve Dysfunction depends upon the underlying cause of the condition. With appropriate treatment, the prognosis is improved.[dovemed.com]
  • ABSTRACT Multifocal motor demyelinating neuropathy is an acquired immune-mediated neuropathy with distinctive clinical and electrophysiologic manifestations, and response to treatment.[thieme-connect.com]
  • Our Chartered Physiotherapists will assess your injury and provide appropriate treatment dependent on the level of rehab needed.[thephysiocompany.com]
  • MMN is an immune mediated disorder and strength can recover after repeated treatments with intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG), whereas ALS does not respond to this or any other treatment, hence the importance of distinguishing these 2 disorders: Disease[mmcneuro.wordpress.com]

Prognosis

  • Last updated June 15, 2017 The treatment and prognosis of Radial Nerve Dysfunction depends upon the underlying cause of the condition. With appropriate treatment, the prognosis is improved.[dovemed.com]
  • Prognosis • Outcome and prognosis depend on the type of injury to the affected nerve, as follows: • Neurapraxis lesion: return to normal function is rapid and complete in at least 90% of cases • Axonotmesis, the results after early release are not as[slideshare.net]
