The study aims as the principal objective to compare two approaches to diagnosis unilateral diaphragmatic paralysis: transdiaphragmatic pressure (Pdi) measurement versus phrenic nerve conduction (NPC) study.
The secondary objective of the study is the strengths and weaknesses of different tests. Diagnostic threshold values.
Inpatient patients in Raymond Poincaré hospital are informed of the utilization of their data retrospectively by the hospital's welcome booklet and reports of patients' hospitalization.
Period of date collected: November 2015 to June 2018.
The reference standard was the diagnosis established during a multidisciplinary meeting held during patient management involving a neurologist, an electrophysiologist, a pulmonologist, and a respiratory physiologist. The medical history, physical findings, and all available investigations including imaging studies, ENMG, lung function tests, and Pdi measurement were considered during the meeting.

To evaluate differences in cortical-basal ganglia-cerebellar functional connectivity between treated unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP) and healthy control cohorts using resting-state functional m...
A syndrome characterized by the acute onset of unilateral FACIAL PARALYSIS which progresses over a 2-5 day period. Weakness of the orbicularis oculi muscle and resulting incomplete eye closure may be associated with corneal injury. Pain behind the ear often precedes the onset of paralysis. This condition may be associated with HERPESVIRUS 1, HUMAN infection of the facial nerve. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1376)
The type of DIAPHRAGMATIC HERNIA caused by TRAUMA or injury, usually to the ABDOMEN.
A congenital abnormality characterized by the elevation of the DIAPHRAGM dome. It is the result of a thinned diaphragmatic muscle and injured PHRENIC NERVE, allowing the intra-abdominal viscera to push the diaphragm upward against the LUNG.
Paralysis caused by a neurotropic toxin secreted by the salivary glands of ticks.
Paralysis of an infant resulting from injury received at birth. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
