Demyelinated nerves attenuate high-frequency components of propagating action potentials. In order to study if there is diagnostic use of this in motor nerves, the spectral energy above 49 Hz, amplitude, area, and duration of the compound muscle action potentials were measured; values after distal and proximal stimulation of posterior tibial nerves were compared. Normative data were collected in 48 control subjects. The same measurements were made in 20 patients with polyneuropathy and reduced… CONTINUE READING
