Motor loss is usually the most important problem in ulnar nerve entrapment, most notably in the intrinsic muscles of the hand. The motor disability is primarily related to loss of coordination in tasks requiring precision and to loss of thumb pincer strength. In the majority of patients, the initial symptoms are intermittent ulnar distribution numbness and tingling, often associated with elbow flexion.

Clopidogrel was developed as a safer and more effective alternative to aspirin for the prevention and treatment of cerebral and cardiovascular ischemic events. Clopidogrel is indicated for the reduction of thrombosis in recent myocardial infarction, recent stroke, or established peripheral arterial disease. Clopidogrel is contraindicated in patients with active pathologic bleed.

Epilepsy & Seizures
Atonic seizures are epileptic attacks characterized by a sudden loss or diminution of muscle tone, which may be fragmentary, confined to a segment, or massive, leading to a slumping to the ground. They may have a generalized or focal origin, and may be brief (drop seizures) with patients able to stand up immediately if they fall; or prolonged (akinetic seizures), lasting from one to several minutes, where the patient falls to the ground and remains mute and motionless.
