Motor unit size in muscular dystrophy a macro electro myographic and scanning electro myographic study



Motor unit size in muscular dystrophy a macro electro myographic and scanning electro myographic study



Journal of Neurology Neurosurgery & Psychiatry 46(11): 996-1005



Patients with muscular dystrophy were investigated with macro-EMG [electromyography] to study activity from whole individual motor units, and with scanning EMG to study the distribution of activity within the motor unit. Macro motor unit potentials were normal or only slightly reduced in amplitude. In scanning EMG the units had unchanged mean length compared with normal, but an uneven distribution of the activity. This was also seen in severely weak muscles. The findings are interpreted as the result of degenerative and regenerative processes, giving rise to remodeling of the motor unit.
