The aim is to compare the frequency of increased vibration perception threshold (VPT) with abnormal 10-g Semmes-Weinstein monofilament (SWF) testing in a non-selected diabetic population, and to assess the agreement between these two screening methods. VPT was measured using a neurothesiometer at the pulp of the hallux and 10-g SWF was applied on three plantar sites on each foot according to the guidelines of the International Working Group on the Diabetic Foot, in 400 consecutive diabetic… CONTINUE READING
