Sensory function of small peripheral nerve fiber was assessed by means of quantitative sensory testing (QST) during which sensory stimulation was provided using diode laser (DL) in patients suffering from painful neuropathy (PN) and compared with symptom-free healthy controls (HC). Based on previous research work using DL stimulation, parameters that demonstrated safe and specific activation of A-delta, which were distinct from stimulation parameters for the activation of C-fibers, were… CONTINUE READING
