The primary role of the Erb's point--axilla segment in median and ulnar motor nerve conduction determinations in alcoholic neuropathy

, : The primary role of the Erb's point--axilla segment in median and ulnar motor nerve conduction determinations in alcoholic neuropathy. Journal of the Neurological Sciences 72(2-3): 299-306

Motor nerve conduction velocity (MNCV) was explored in the Erb's point-axilla (N-A) nerve segment of median and ulnar nerves, bilaterally, in 10 patients with a history of prolonged heavy drinking but in whom no other predisposing factors to peripheral neuropathy were found. For comparison, MNCV was determined also in the axilla-elbow (A-E), elbow-wrist (E-W) nerve segments, as well as the motor terminal latency (MTL) of the same nerves. A total of 140 nerve segments were tested tested but only 133 results were obtained. Abnormal MNCV or MTL was found in 36 or 27% of all tested nerve segments. From the latter, 38.9% were in the N-A nerve segments. Of N-A nerve segments tested, reduction in MNCV was found in 46.7%. Our results are statistically significant.

The concentration of male sarcophagids on prominent rocky and other similar areas is a well known phenomenon. The author uses the term 'preconnubial association' since these concentrations appear to be motivated by sexual preparation for...
