abductor pollicis brevis (APB) studies

Since the first nerve conduction studies in the 1950s, the abductor pollicis brevis (APB) muscle was a preferred target for many electroneuromyographic techniques. Authors used surface electrodes or coaxial needle electrodes to record the compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs) from its belly, and several parameters were measured such as distal motor latency (DML) after stimulation of the median nerve at the wrist (7 or 8 cm segment) and motor nerve conduction velocity (MNCV) was usually calculated in the elbow-wrist (forearm) segment in both healthy subjects and patients affected by carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS).
