Medial dorsal superficial peroneal nerve studies in patients with polyneuropathy and normal sural responses.
Muscle Nerve. 2005 Mar; 31(3):386-9.MN

Abstract

We studied medial dorsal superficial peroneal (MDSP) nerves in 52 patients with clinical evidence of mild chronic sensorimotor polyneuropathy and normal sural nerve responses, in order to assess the diagnostic sensitivity and usefulness of MDSP nerve testing in electrodiagnostic practice. To determine the effect of age on MDSP nerve parameters, 98 normal subjects were also examined. Electrodiagnostic evaluation involved studies of motor nerve conduction in tibial, peroneal, and median nerves; sensory nerve conduction in sural, MDSP, median, and radial nerves; tibial and peroneal nerve F waves; H reflexes from the soleus muscles; and needle electromyography of gastrocnemius and abductor hallucis muscles. Among the patients, 49% had low-amplitude sensory responses in MDSP nerves and 57% had either slowing of sensory conduction velocity or no sensory responses on proximal stimulation. MDSP nerve amplitude, tibial nerve motor velocity, and H reflexes were the most sensitive for detection of mild chronic symmetrical axonal sensorimotor polyneuropathy. MDSP nerve testing should be included in the routine electrodiagnostic evaluation of patients with suspected polyneuropathy and normal sural nerve responses.
