The procedure of removing a piece of muscle tissue from the body of an organism and examining it microscopically is known as muscle biopsy. The common issues discovered through a muscle biopsy include problems associated with the connective tissue, vascular system, nervous system and musculoskeletal system. Muscle biopsy is helpful in distinguishing between myopathies and neuropathies. Myopathy is a disease in which the muscle fibers do not function properly. Some of its examples include spasm, muscle cramps and stiffness in the body. In order to diagnose problems with the help of muscle biopsy, a biopsy needle is inserted into the muscle. This book elucidates the concepts and innovative models around prospective developments with respect to muscle biopsy. It strives to provide a fair idea about this discipline and to help develop a better understanding of the latest advances within this field. The extensive content of this book provides the readers with a thorough understanding of the subject.
