Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Applied Neurological Sciences book series (NEUROLOGICAL, volume 1)


Many papers have been written about chronic nerve entrapment syndromes. In this paper, we will restrict our study:
  • to the electrophysiological evaluation of severity and evolution of mixed nerve compression

  • to the control of neurolysis by comparing pre- and postoperative electrophysiological results
