I cannot understand why the Martin-Gruber, or any other two-nerve connection, is called "anastomosis.” This word, from Latin, is used when two tubes, such as a colon with air inside, are connected. Joao Aris Kouyoumdjian, MD, PhD - Brazil.

I enjoy participating in the AANEM Connect Forum for a number of reasons. There are very fundamental questions posed on a frequent basis that cause me to pause and ask myself, ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’ Also, I continue to learn new things when others contribute their thoughts and experiences. Connect is an excellent opportunity for members to interact and to address any topic, including those that may not be discussed at an annual meeting or journal article.
