Motor and sensory conduction in the musculocutaneous nerve.
  1. W Trojaborg


    Motor and sensory conduction velocity in the musculocutaneous nerve were determined in 51 normal subjects. The maximal velocity from the anterior cervical triangle to the axilla was the same in motor and sensory fibres. The conduction velocity decreased 2m/s per 10 years increase of age. It was 70 m/s at 15-24 years and 58 m/s at 65-74 years. The velocity of the slowest components in sensory fibres was 17 m/s. Three selected case reports illustrate the diagnostic value of the method.
