BERTOLINI, Gladson Ricardo Flor et al. Assessment of wistar rats' soleus muscle trophism after nerve compression and treatment with high-voltage current. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Esporte [online]. 2012, vol.34, n.4, pp.1035-1046. ISSN 0101-3289.

AIM: to evaluate the high voltage current on the tropism of rats soleus with sciatic nerve compression. Eighteen rats were divided into: GS - nerve compression and sham; GP + - compression and treated with anodic current; GP - compression and cathode. Finally, the soleus were dissected and weighed on an analytical balance. Then slides were mounted cross sections observed in light microscope and digitized for analysis of smaller diameter of 100 fibers per muscle. RESULTS: All groups showed lower tropism, the two forms of assessment (p <0.05), but the comparison between groups, there was no significant difference (p> 0.05). CONCLUSION: The high voltage current did not inhibit atrophy in soleus underwent nerve compression.
