EMG is by far the most useful method in assessing denervation and reinnervation. This holds true for chronic diseases like polyneuropathies and ALS as well as for for acute e.g. traumatic nerve lesions. EMG can not only provide information whether a denervation process ist still ongoing or not but also about the dynamics of denervation and the reinnervation process. After periperal nerve lesions the various EMG signals will help to give prognostic information and whether nerve surgery has been successful.
The audience will understand the pathophysiological processes and how these translate into EMG signals. Case studies will highlight the relevance for every day clinical practice followed by a quiz.
