Postphlebitic syndrome (P. P. S.) affects the electromyogram. There are: frequent spontaneous low frequency discharges of motor units; occasional appearance of typical "biplets", suggesting a tendency to tetany presumably connected with the anoxic condition of the muscle; abnormal tendency to a temporal summation in slight volitional movement; frequent and clear reduction of voltage in maximal volitional movement; abnormally long lasting potentials; mostly simplified potential contours with few polyphasic motor units; and these alterations uniformly distributed in the leg and foot muscles.
