Thirteen patients were retrospectively identified with the electrodiagnostic pattern of combined L5 radiculopathy by needle electrode examination, and abnormality of the superficial peroneal nerve (SPN) sensory nerve action potential (SNAP) amplitude. To have combined L5-derived sensory and motor axon loss, lesions must be localized at or distal to the L5 dorsal root ganglion (DRG), but also proximal to the sacral plexus. Six patients had evidence of an active intraspinal canal (ISC) lesion, 3… CONTINUE READING
