Science News: Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Noninvasive Positive Pressure Ventilatory Support: "Nasal Noninvasive Ventilation" or "Noninvasive Ventilatory Support"?

    11/14/2022
This article proposes a trial of noninvasive ventilatory support as an alternative to tracheostomy in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Studies have shown brief statistical benefit of nasal noninvasive ventilation; however, this strategy may not be able to normalize carbon dioxide (CO2), leading to hypercapnia and therefore eventually to CO2 narcosis, intubation, and tracheostomy.

Science News: Extensor Digitorum Brevis Bulk and Associations With Fibular Motor Nerve Conduction Amplitude

    10/31/2022
Prior studies demonstrate fibular compound motor action potential (CMAP) < 4.0 mV predicts impairment of ankle proprioceptive precision and increased fall risk. The authors posit that evaluation of extensor digitorum brevis (EDB) may present a simple surrogate for CMAP amplitude. This study aims to correlate physician evaluation of EDB muscle bulk with CMAP amplitude on nerve conduction study (NCS).

Science News: Eculizumab Versus Rituximab in Generalised Myasthenia Gravis

    10/17/2022
A small sub-group of myasthenia gravis (MG) patients is refractory to first-line immunosuppressive medications. Complement-targeted therapies are relatively new in neurological practice but gaining grounds in the landscape of MG management, particularly acetylcholine receptor antibody (AChR)-Ab positive cases.

Science News: Measurement of Excitation-Contraction Coupling Time in Critical Illness Myopathy

    10/3/2022
This study describes a novel electrophysiological method using an accelerometer to measure the excitation-contraction coupling of the soleus muscle for early diagnosis of critical illness myopathy (CIM).
