The literature on the effects of electrical stimulation on denervated and dystrophic muscles is reviewed. Analysis of the information supplied suggests that denervated muscles of experimental animals may benefit from the treatment that cannot be used on human patients due to technical limitations. However electrical stimulation can be used in the treatment of dystrophic muscles in human.
