  • INTRODUCTION The second lumbrical-interossei latency difference test (2LINT) is used frequently for electrodiagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). A premotor potential observed with 2LINT has been identified as a median-nerve sensory nerve action potential. We evaluated the utility of the premotor potential latency analysis (i.e., premotor potential study; PPS) for CTS electrodiagnosis. METHODS Sensitivity, specificity, and percentage "no evoked response" (%NER) values were compared… CONTINUE READING
