Long Latency Reflex of Median Nerve among Healthy Adult Female Volunteers

August 3, 2022 Medical Science 0

The goal of the current study was to document the average value of the female dominant hand’s abductor pollicis brevis (APB) median nerve Long Latency Reflexes (LLR). LLR is a transcortical reflex loop that develops after a mixed nerve is stimulated at a low intensity. In the clinic, LLR can be utilized to identify patients with S1 radiculopathy and proximal nerve lesions. Studies have shown the normal values of late responses like the H-reflex and F-wave in the upper limb.

The thirty female participants in the current observational study ranged in age from 20 to 30. The female participants in the study were chosen when their follicles were still developing. LLR was seen by stimulating the median nerve and abducting the thumb. According to the study’s results, the average and standard deviation for APB LLR delay were 46.29 and 2.58 milliseconds (ms). APB LLR amplitude’s mean standard deviation was 208.21 58.45 microvolt (V). The dominant hand’s normal LLR latency and Abductor Pollicis amplitude Brevis values in healthy adult female volunteers therefore help in the detection of neurological disorders.
