Superficial peroneal sensory and sural nerve conduction studies in peripheral neuropathy.
J Clin Neurosci. 2006 Jun; 13(5):547-9.JC

Abstract

The objective of this study was to prospectively evaluate sensory nerve conduction studies (NCS) in the distal lower limbs in the electrodiagnosis of peripheral neuropathy. We prospectively studied 316 consecutive patients with surface stimulation and recording, in comparison with 90 control subjects. A total of 310 patients were found to have lower limb sensory NCS abnormalities. In these patients, the rate of detection of peripheral neuropathy with superficial peroneal NCS (88.5%) was significantly higher (P<0.001) compared with sural NCS (75%). The superficial peroneal NCS appeared to have a higher detection rate for peripheral neuropathy in our study, and its study can be adjunctive to sural NCS.
