It is now 30 years since the first motor unit number estimation (MUNE) technique was introduced by Allan McComas as a way of providing an objective, sensitive and reproducible means of measuring the number of motor axons in living human muscle or muscle group. MUNE techniques have substantially evolved over the past decade and have been applied, with increasing frequency, to the study of age effects on motoneurone population and muscle denervating disorders such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), spinal muscular atrophy, poliomyelitis and different types of inherited and acquired peripheral neuropathies. In the future, one of the most important topics involving MUNE, will probably be its use in monitoring the progress of ALS patients undergoing experimental drug trials. However, among incremental, multiple point stimulation, spike-triggered averaging, F-wave analysis and statistical methods, there is no consensus about the best MUNE method. There is only a general feeling that some techniques are more valid than others. For this reason, in the present review, brief descriptions of the distinct MUNE methods are presented. In the second part of the paper, advantages and limitations (alternation, sampling errors, temporal registration etc...) of the most commonly employed procedures are considered. [less ▲]

The aims of the present study are to document side-to-side differences and temporal variability, between two trials (T1 and T2 at a time interval of 3 months) of nerve conduction measurements collected from 30 healthy subjects (mean age 22 +/- 2 years). METHODS: The protocol at T1 consisted of motor nerve conduction studies of median, ulnar, peroneal and tibial nerves bilaterally, with measurement of (a) motor response size (amplitude and area); (b) terminal latency; (c) minimal, mean and maximal F-wave latency; (d) motor conduction velocity; and (e) F-wave occurrence. T1 also involved sensory nerve conduction studies of median, ulnar, radial, lateral and medial cutaneous, sural and superficial peroneal nerves bilaterally, with measurement of sensory potential size (amplitude and area) and computation of sensory conduction velocity. The protocol at T2 consisted of identical measurements from the dominant side. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: There was a negative relationship between the variability of parameters evaluating nervous conduction and the length of the nerve segment under study. Thus, the smallest side-to-side and temporal variabilities are measured for minimal F-wave latencies (on average 2-3%). The limits of symmetry and temporal variability are particularly useful for diagnosis of unilateral peripheral neuropathy or neurophysiological follow-up of patients with neuropathy, when the variability of the parameter under study is weak and when there is a high correlation between values recorded on the left and on the right or at T1 and T2. This was the case for motor response size of tibial and ulnar nerves, sensory potential size of radial nerve and minimal F-wave latencies from each studied motor nerve. [less ▲]

Hereditary neuropathy liability to pressure palsies is characterized by recurring accesses of painless paralysis at the level of various nerves likely to be compressed. This affection remains underdiagnosed because of its usually benign course, sometimes without any symptom. The diagnosis is supported by clinical and electrophysiological data associated with, in the majority of patients, a deletion of one of the alleles coding for protein PMP 22 on the level of the locus 17p11.2.
