GONZALEZ ROIG, JORGE LUIS  y  LASONCEL HERRERA, ROGELIO. The electromyographic lab in a center for rehabilitation. Rev Cubana Ortop Traumatol [online]. 1996, vol.10, n.1. ISSN 0864-215X.

The information included in data collection forms of 3 242 patients cared for at the Electromyographic lab from "Julio Díaz" Rehabilitation Hospital between 1990 and 1993, bouth included, is analized. Data were reorganized by sex, age, origin and diagnosis of the patients. Male sex and the age group of 41-50 years, as well as patients from other centers and the diagnosis of neuropathy and radiculoplexopathy were found to be predominant. The most frequent examinations performed were electromyogram, studies of sensitive, motor peripheral nervous conduction, and somatosensory evoked potentials. In 98,0 % of patients, the studies conducted were consistent with the preliminary clinical diagnosis. The level of coverage of Laboratory Service for hospitalized patients with diagnosis established by the above mentioned examinations was 69,3 %. Electrophysiologic studies, besides being a diagnostic aid, allow for the follow-up of the clinical course of the diseases under treatment and for the evaluation of the results from therapeutic measures applied.
