We aimed to verify the predictiveness of dorsal sural nerve neurophysiological monitoring in obtaining risk stratification for oxaliplatin-induced peripheral neurotoxicity (OXAPN). We conducted a secondary analysis on a cohort of 110 colorectal cancer patients who were evaluated clinically and neurophysiologically before chemotherapy, at mid-treatment and at discontinuation. We applied the classification tree analysis method to predict the end-of-treatment OXAPN neurophysiological diagnosis… CONTINUE READING
