Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A plant genus of the family GERANIACEAE. Geranium is also used as a common name for PELARGONIUM.

A plant genus of the family GERANIACEAE. The common name of geranium is also used for the GERANIUM genus.

Mechanical compression of nerves or nerve roots from internal or external causes. These may result in a conduction block to nerve impulses (due to MYELIN SHEATH dysfunction) or axonal loss. The nerve and nerve sheath injuries may be caused by ISCHEMIA; INFLAMMATION; or a direct mechanical effect.

A class of nerve fibers as defined by their structure, specifically the nerve sheath arrangement. The AXONS of the myelinated nerve fibers are completely encased in a MYELIN SHEATH. They are fibers of relatively large and varied diameters. Their NEURAL CONDUCTION rates are faster than those of the unmyelinated nerve fibers (NERVE FIBERS, UNMYELINATED). Myelinated nerve fibers are present in somatic and autonomic nerves.

The propagation of the NERVE IMPULSE along the nerve away from the site of an excitation stimulus.
