A. Alexandre et al. evaluating the summary results of nerve conduction studies and not the single tests. Electrophysiological tests were of the F wave type from median and ulnar nerves, SSEP (N9) from median and ulnar nerves, motor and sensory nerve conduction studies from median, ulnar and medial antebrachial cutaneus nerves and electromyography. The summary indexing of these paramethers in all the patients were positive for TOS. A control study (submitted for revision) was done with patients a¤ected by true neurological TOS and with normal control group.

Perineurium creates a fluid environment around the nerve fibres of optimal composition for transmission of electrical impulses [1]. Early and late oedema of the vasogenic type is associated with elevated endoneurial fluid pressure and microcirculatory disturbances. Proliferation of fibroblasts, changes in the composition of the matrix and collagen formation may result in endoneurial fibrosis at the site of the lesion and distal to it. Nerve damage due to an injury may be further aggravated by oedema increasing endoneurial pressure which might compromise blood flow in the fascicles.
