The goal of this study is to establish a genetic registry of patients with early-onset motor neuron and neuromuscular diseases. The investigators will collect samples from patients with a ...
The objectives of this protocol are to: 1) screen patients with various neuromuscular disorders and facilitate their entry into appropriate research protocols; 2) help resolve puzzling di...
Neuromuscular diseases (NMD) are characterized by a reduced maximum insufflation capacity (MIC), which contributes to increased morbidity and mortality from respiratory diseases. Technique...
The main objective of this study is to determine whether the Respiratory Physiotherapy allows improvement or maintenance of respiratory function in children with Neuromuscular Diseases, ag...
We want to demonstrate that modifications of the ventilation parameters are liable to improve the different characteristics of phonation (duration, intensity, prosody..) in neuromuscular p...
To describe the urologic sequalae of several rare congenital neuromuscular diseases.
Immunosuppressive and immunomodulatory therapies have had a major effect on the treatment of immune-mediated neuromuscular diseases. Following the landmark introduction of synthetic corticosteroids, o...
Neuromuscular diseases (NMDs) are a heterogeneous group of diseases affecting the anterior horn cell of spinal cord, neuromuscular junction, peripheral nerves and muscles. NMDs cause physical disabili...
Neuromuscular ultrasound has become an essential tool in the diagnostic evaluation of various neuromuscular disorders, and as such, there is growing interest in neuromuscular ultrasound training. Effe...
Muscle water T (T ) has been proposed as a biomarker to monitor disease activity and therapy effectiveness in patients with neuromuscular diseases (NMD). Multi-echo spin-echo (MESE) is known to be aff...
Signs and symptoms associated with diseases of the muscle, neuromuscular junction, or peripheral nerves.
The use of peripheral nerve stimulation to assess transmission at the NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION, especially in the response to anesthetics, such as the intensity of NEUROMUSCULAR BLOCKADE by NEUROMUSCULAR BLOCKING AGENTS.
Conditions characterized by impaired transmission of impulses at the NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION. This may result from disorders that affect receptor function, pre- or postsynaptic membrane function, or ACETYLCHOLINESTERASE activity. The majority of diseases in this category are associated with autoimmune, toxic, or inherited conditions.
Severe or complete loss of motor function in the lower extremities and lower portions of the trunk. This condition is most often associated with SPINAL CORD DISEASES, although BRAIN DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES; and MUSCULAR DISEASES may also cause bilateral leg weakness.
Complete or severe weakness of the muscles of respiration. This condition may be associated with MOTOR NEURON DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVE DISEASES; NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES; SPINAL CORD DISEASES; injury to the PHRENIC NERVE; and other disorders.

Muscular dystrophy is a group of degenerative inherited disorders causing muscle weakness and loss of muscle tissue. The different types are Becker muscular dystrophy, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy, Facioscapulohumeral mu...
Congenital conditions are those which are present from birth. They include structural deformities or loss of function in organs such as the <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->heart, gut or skeletal system. They can be corrected by <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->surgery, m...
