EMG-What does this mean??
FINDINGS FROM MY EMG (DEEMED NORMAL):

-Right and Left femoral motor responses are normal

-The right and left peroneal and tibial motor responses show slowed conduction velocities, and the right peroneal motor response also shows mildly decreased amplitude. The left peroneal motor response shows an accessory peroneal response which is a normal anatomical variant.

-The right and left tibial F-wave responses showed prolonged distal latencies.

-The left sural sensory response is normal. The right sensory response shows a borderline distal latency.

-EMG of the right leg and lumbosacral paraspinus muscles and left cervical paraspinous muscles is normal

IMPRESSION:
EMG is normal with no evidence of active denervation, chronic reinervation, myopathy, or lumbosacral or cervical radiculopathy

RELEVANT FACTS:
PATIENT AGE: 49
OTHER: Former football injury in right leg, No ACL or cartilage. Bone and bone, and Femoral condyle necrosis.


Thanks and God Bless

The EMG test you took shows very mild differentiation from the norm, consistent with a history of football playing.

The EMG is a very good test that should be utilized more often.

All in all, you have no serious nerve damage, which is a very positive finding.

There is a missing piece to your post. The missing piece is "why did you have the test".
