By Vladimir Golovchinsky M.D., Ph.D., D. Sci. (auth.)

Carpal-tunnel and different entrapment syndromes are possibly the commonest work-related accidents at the moment suggested. With this e-book, Vladimir Golovchinsky offers the 1st proof of double-crush syndrome as a subgroup of those.
to this point the lifestyles of double-crush syndrome has been an issue of dialogue. Dr. Golovchinsky offers a statistical research of considerable scientific fabric, which unearths a cause-and-effect courting among cervical or lumbar radiculopathy and peripheral entrapment in corresponding nerves, therefore proving the life of double-crush syndrome.
This publication might be valuable to physicians acting EMG-NCV trying out and to different healthcare pros who stumble upon peripheral entrapment syndromes of their practices.

1983). This results in a calculation giving an impossibly high motor conduction velocity for the median nerve. Moreover, in the response evoked by the stimulation in the antecubital area, superimposition of delayed CMAP caused by the median nerve fibers passing through the carpal tunnel and CMAP caused by the median nerve fibers joining the ulnar nerve not passing through the carpal tunnel or being slowed there, may create a complicated, oddly shaped CMAP (Figure 11). , 1988) -- may also interfere with diagnosing carpal tunnel syndrome.
