This two tiered study is a multi-center, open label, surveillance study of the use of continuous nerve blocks with the ON-Q® C-bloc and either nerve stimulator or ultrasound guided contin...

Encapsulated Cell Biodelivery of Nerve Growth Factor to Alzheimer´s Disease Patients

Cholinergic neurons in the basal forebrain project widely to the cerebral cortex and hippocampus. These neurons depend on nerve growth factor (NGF) from their target areas for survival. Im...

Ultrasound Description of the Sciatic Nerve

Sciatic nerve blocks are frequently used for anesthesia or analgesia for surgery of the lower legs. Currently, if ultrasound is used to find the sciatic nerve, the leg must be raised to l...

C6 deficiency does not alter intrinsic regeneration speed after peripheral nerve crush injury.

Peripheral nerve injury leads to Wallerian degeneration, followed by regeneration, in which functionality and morphology of the nerve are restored. We previously described that deficiency for compleme...

Are Human Peripheral Nerves Sensitive to X-Ray Imaging?

Diagnostic imaging techniques play an important role in assessing the exact location, cause, and extent of a nerve lesion, thus allowing clinicians to diagnose and manage more effectively a variety of...

Defining Peripheral Nervous System Dysfunction in the SOD-1G93A Transgenic Rat Model of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

Growing evidence indicates that alterations within the peripheral nervous system (PNS) are involved at an early stage in the amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) pathogenetic cascade. In this study, ma...

Role of neurotrophin in the taste system following gustatory nerve injury.

Taste system is a perfect system to study degeneration and regeneration after nerve injury because the taste system is highly plastic and the regeneraton is robust. Besides, degeneration and regenerat...

Diffusion tensor imaging with quantitative evaluation and fiber tractography of lumbar nerve roots in sciatica.

To quantitatively evaluate nerve roots by measuring fractional anisotropy (FA) values in healthy volunteers and sciatica patients, visualize nerve roots by tractography, and compare the diagnostic eff...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Loss of functional activity and trophic degeneration of nerve axons and their terminal arborizations following the destruction of their cells of origin or interruption of their continuity with these cells. The pathology is characteristic of neurodegenerative diseases. Often the process of nerve degeneration is studied in research on neuroanatomical localization and correlation of the neurophysiology of neural pathways.

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

Degeneration of distal aspects of a nerve axon following injury to the cell body or proximal portion of the axon. The process is characterized by fragmentation of the axon and its MYELIN SHEATH.

A technetium imaging agent used in renal scintigraphy, computed tomography, lung ventilation imaging, gastrointestinal scintigraphy, and many other procedures which employ radionuclide imaging agents.

Optical imaging techniques used for recording patterns of electrical activity in tissues by monitoring transmembrane potentials via FLUORESCENCE imaging with voltage-sensitive fluorescent dyes.
