The prevalence by staged severity of various types of diabetic neuropathy, retinopathy, and nephropathy in a population‐based cohort
The magnitude of the health problem from diabetic neuropathies remains inadequately estimated due to the lack of prospective population-based studies employing standardized and validated assessmentsExpand
A plasma exchange versus immune globulin infusion trial in chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy
Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy is a paralytic syndrome, causing considerable disability and even death. In controlled clinical trials, plasma exchange prevented orExpand
Cool, warm, and heat‐pain detection thresholds
We recently found that vibratory detection threshold is greatly influenced by the algorithm of testing. Here, we study the influence of stimulus characteristics and algorithm of testing andExpand
A 4, 2, and 1 stepping algorithm for quick and accurate estimation of cutaneous sensation threshold
In quantitative sensory testing, certain methods may lead to incorrect estimates of vibratory (VDT), cool (CDT), or warm (WDT) detection thresholds. Expand
Nerve glucose, fructose, sorbitol, myo-inositol, and fiber degeneration and regeneration in diabetic neuropathy.
We measured the alcohol sugars in sural nerves from 11 controls, 21 conventionally treated patients with diabetes and neuropathy, and 4 diabetics without neuropathy. The results were related toExpand
Capillary number and percentage closed in human diabetic sural nerve.
The number of capillaries per mm2, minimum intercapillary distance, number of endothelial nuclei per capillary section, and percentage of capillaries closed were evaluated in transverse sections ofExpand
Plasma exchange in polyneuropathy associated with monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance.
BACKGROUND Polyneuropathy associated with monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) has been treated with plasma exchange, intravenous immune globulin, and chemotherapy, but theExpand
Vibratory and Cooling Detection Thresholds Compared With Other Tests in Diagnosing and Staging Diabetic Neuropathy
Increasingly more tests are being used to detect and characterize diabetic polyneuropathy, but their value in setting minimal criteria for the diagnosis of neuropathy and for staging severity remainsExpand
The spatial distribution of fiber loss in diabetic polyneuropathy suggests ischemia
Characterization and quantitation of the spatial distribution of pathological abnormalities along the length of nerves may be helpful in understanding the underlying mechanisms of diabeticExpand
The Rochester Diabetic Neuropathy Study
We evaluated the initial assessments of the 380 diabetic patients with and without polyneuropathy in the Rochester Diabetic Neuropathy Study for (1) associations among neuropathy test results, (2)Expand
