A new method of superficial peroneal nerve conduction studies.
Electromyogr Clin Neurophysiol. 2003 Dec; 43(8):507-10.EC

Abstract

Herein, we report a new method for obtaining sensory nerve conduction velocities (SCVs) in the distal segment of the superficial peroneal nerve (SPN). Twenty lower extremities from 10 normal subjects (mean age: 33.4 years) were evaluated. The recording electrodes were placed on the dorsal surfaces of the ankle and foot. We stimulated the SPNs on the anterior edge of subjects' fibulas, and evoked sensory nerve action potentials (SNAPs) antidromically. SCVs were calculated based upon the distances and the latencies. The mean SCV was 41.3 +/- 4.3 m/s in the distal segment, which was slower than in the proximal segment (51.7 +/- 3.9 m/s). We were able to stimulate only the SPN with certainty. In conclusion, the described technique should be of clinical value in diagnosing peripheral neuropathy.
