A comparison of electrophysiological tests for the early diagnosis of diabetic neuropathy.

Abstract

Clinical criteria and several electrophysiological parameters for detecting nerve damage were compared in 99 patients with diabetes mellitus type 1 and type 2. Abnormal results were found in sural/radial amplitude ratio (51%), minimal F-wave latency of the tibial nerve (36.4%), sensory conduction velocity of the sural nerve (29.8%), and sural sensory nerve… (More)
