Abstract

The Authors report their experience in the rehabilitation treatment of patients suffering from winged scapula due to a lesion of the long thoracic nerve, after a surgical operation for mammary carcinoma. The deficit was foud in 14 patients out of 160 women observed. These patients were evaluated by means of electromygraphic and electroneurographic examination. Clinical and neurophysiological data (latency and amplitude of 'M' max response), before and after the rehabilitation treatment, are reported. The electrophysiological evaluation proved useful to determine the neurological damage and the evolution of the recovery.
