We hypothesised that such reversible conduction failure would be also observed in fs and related disorders. Serial nerve conduction studies were prospectively performed in 15 patients with fs and related conditions. Neither conduction block nor abnormal temporal dispersion was observed in any of the nerves at any point in all the patients. how much does one viagra pill costs Conduction velocities for none of the nerves were in the demyelinating range. cheap generic viagra The amplitude of sensory nerve action potential was decreased in three fs, one fs/gbs and two bbe/gbs patients. Compound muscle action potential amplitudes were decreased in the two bbe/gbs patients. These decreases in amplitudes of sensory nerve action potential and compound muscle action potential promptly resolved without significant change in duration on serial studies. order viagra Reversible conduction failure was seen in six of the 15 patients with fs and related disorders on serial nerve conduction studies. There were no signs of demyelination or remyelination in the 15 patients. The pathology appears to be primarily non-demyelinating. generic name viagra does work We believe these conditions form a continuous spectrum with axonal gbs. how much does one viagra pill costs Topic: health comments (0) who dugg this story? where to order viagra online Email this link add your comment please login or signup to leave a comment related stories non-demyelinating, reversible conduction failure in a case of pharyngeal–cervical–brachial weakness overlapped by fisher syndrome submitted by babay2096 2 months ago - topic: health pathophysiologically, guillain–barrã© syndrome is divided into demyelinating and axonal subtypes. viagra for women available in india Recent studies have shown that serial nerve conduction studies (ncss) are required to differentiate a demyelination–remyelination pathophysiology from one with axonal nodal reversible conduction...

After long delay, ignorant of what you guarded

when it came volcanic to your mind, there to be

hoarded smoldering until you found a way to tell it,

your secret is out—your joy too tender to entrust

to anyone, your pain too dangerous to reveal

until you do. And there it is, a birth, with blood,

to celebrate.

                     But then the bowl in the heart,

where such things first appear, has something

new to hide, some fingerling creature silver

in the dark, with jagged fins and tender wings

that must be held, locked up, suppressed, fed

crumbs as you fend off the world. Little one,

must you leave me now?


Thus we breathe our holy secrets one by one.
