Title Clinical and electromyographic findings on the long-term sequelae of polyneuropathy due to industrial glues
Original title Osservazione clinico-elettroneurografica degli esiti a distanza delle polineuropatie da collanti industriali [in Italian]
Bibliographic information Sep.-Oct. 1982, Vol.30, No.2, p.80-83. 10 ref.
Abstract A review of 24 cases of polyneuropathy due to exposure to industrial glues. There was good correlation between clinical and electromyographic findings - in particular maximum motor conduction velocity. Advice is given for the correct electromyographic follow-up of patients with toxic polyneuropathy due to industrial glues.
