Clinical Study

Comparison of the Neuromuscular Profile of the First Dorsal Interosseous Muscle and the Flexor Hallucis Brevis Muscle as Measured by Electromyography

Table 1

Onset and recovery times of the first dorsal interosseous muscle and the flexor hallucis brevis muscle after administration of vecuronium 0.1 mg/kg.

FDIMFHBM

Onset time (s)125 ± 36142 ± 37
Time to TOFR 0.7 (min)99.2 ± 55.892.1 ± 53.9*
Time to TOFR 0.9 (min)121.7 ± 65.6110.5 ± 55.6

Values are mean ± SD. First dorsal interosseous muscle (FDIM), flexor hallucis brevis muscle (FHBM), and train-of-four ratio (TOFR). The time from Vecuronium 0.1 mg/kg Injection to Recovery of TOFR 0.7 (time to TOFR 0.7), the time from vecuronium 0.1 mg/kg injection to recovery of TOFR 0.9 (time to TOFR 0.9). (* 𝑃 < 0 . 0 1 3 versus FDIM).
