INTRODUCTION To evaluate the sensitivity of electrophysiologic assessments, we compared F-waves and motor and sensory nerve conduction studies (MNCS and SNCS) in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). METHODS We tested median, ulnar, tibial, and fibular nerves in 132 DM patients divided into those with and without clinical evidence of polyneuropathy. (More)
BACKGROUND The long-time exercise test (ET) is used to diagnose the primary periodic paralyses (PPs). However the reference values of ET are many and various. This study aimed to investigate the reference value of long-time ET in the diagnosis of PPs. METHODS We recruited 108 healthy subjects, 68 patients with PPs, and 72 patients with other diseases for(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish normal ranges of F-wave measures in China as compared to published data in Brazil and Japan. METHOD We studied F waves in 127 healthy Chinese subjects, aged 21-78 years old, stimulating the median, ulnar, tibial and peroneal nerves distally and proximaly. RESULT The F-wave latencies had a linear correlation to the subject height(More)
