Electrophysiological investigation of peripheral neuromuscular changes in the elderly

, : Electrophysiological investigation of peripheral neuromuscular changes in the elderly. Medicina Geriatrica 20(2): 123-127

The results of investigation by EMG of 252 elderly patients average age 73 years with suspected neuromuscolar disorders are described. A positive diagnosis was offered in 178 (70.6%) patients, there was no evidence of neurophysiological disorders in 66 patients (26.2%), only while 8 patients (3.2%) had dubious results. Finally the value of current electrophysiological techniques in the diagnosis and management of peripheral neuromuscolar disorders in the elderly is discussed.

The effect of antecedent diet on the G6PD enzyme activity response to starvation-refeeding was studied. Male rats were fed either a commercially prepared open formula stock diet (C) or a 65% glucose diet (G) for 3 weeks prior to the onset of the s...
