Patients were distributed in mild, moderate and severe grades according to ultrasound and nerve conduction studies. Agreement was determined using statistical analysis.
In the sensory nerve conduction studies, a right peroneal superficial nerve response could not be recorded and the right sural nerve amplitude was low.
Ulnar and median sensory nerve conduction studies were also applied over wrist-to-fourth finger segment for the hands in which the standard nerve conduction studies were normal.

Sensory and/or motor axonal neuropathy was the most common pattern seen in 11 (84.6%) out of 13 patients who underwent nerve conduction studies prior to treatment initiation, one patient had demyelinating pattern and in another patient the studies were inconclusive.
Pearls & Oy-sters: False positives in short-segment nerve conduction studies due to ulnar nerve dislocation.
The study is strengthened by its objective evaluation of nerve function through nerve conduction studies in addition to the subjective pain and QOL scores.
Twenty-six chapters are: what is n EMG?; why perform electrodiagnostic studies?; about the machine; nerve conduction studies; electromyography; injuries to peripheral nerves; how to plan out the examination the examination; pitfalls; carpal tunnel syndrome; ulnar neuropathy; radial neuropathy; radiculopathy; spinal stenosis; fibular (peroneal) neuropathy; tarsal tunnel syndrome; peripheral polyneuropathy; myopathy; brachial plexopathies; lumbosacral plexopathies; motor neuron diseases; critical illness neuropathy and myopathy; inflammatory neuropathies; neuromuscular junction disorders; how to write a report; tables of normal; reimbursement.
In the literature, CTS which was detected incidentally during nerve conduction studies (NCS) in few cases of inflammatory myositis was reported with an estimated prevalence of 8%.
The trial, including 44 patients with diabetes, compared NC-stat DPNCheck with gold standard laboratory nerve conduction studies.
After an overview and a section on the fundamentals of nerve conduction studies, coverage encompasses sources of error (anomalies, artifacts, technical factors, and statistics); detailed nerve conduction studies; fundamentals of electromyography; clinical-electrophysiologic correlations; special clinical settings; and instrumentation.
Dr Hisham Al -Khayat, consultant neurological surgery & head of neuroscience department at Dar Al Shifa Hospital, said: "The hospital's electroencephalography, nerve conduction studies and the electromyography machines continue to add value to the diagnosis of its patients.
