Abstract

Motor nerve conduction velocity (MNCV) and distal latency (DL) were measured in peripheral nerves of 7 patients with myotonic dystrophy and was compared with results in a control group. The neuromuscular transmission was studied by repetitive stimulation of ulnar nerve with different impulse frequencies. The MNCV was significantly reduced and the DL prolonged in each nerve, particularly in the median and peroneal nerves in patients. Repetitive stimulation detected abnormal changes in amplitude varying from typical myasthenic responses to facilitation and reduction in amplitude dependent on impulse frequency.
