Clinical materials were obtained on a comprehensive examination of 64 patients with complicated tuberculous spondylitis. To determine the pattern and severity of spinal cord impairments, electromyographic (EMG) and electroneuromyographic (ENMG) studies were used to study the state of Ja-afferents, alpha-4-gamma-motoneurons, and afferents of the reflectory ring closing at the level of different. Comparison of the clinical picture and EMG data of neuromuscular excitatory transmission permits determination of the mechanism responsible for the neuroparalytic syndrome. Therefore, EMG and ENMG can yield a complete picture of a pathological process, vascular disorders in particular, and the functional state of the spinal cord.
