April 29, 2016: According to an April 2016 article in Physical Therapy (PTJ), APTA’s science journal, presurgical electrodiagnostic testing may help predict increase in muscle strength after a process known as extracellular matrix (ECM) implantation, a procedure that uses pig tissue cells to act as “scaffolding” that draws a patient’s own stem cells to the site of volumetric muscle loss (VML).
