In this study, the intra- and interobserver reliability of the Semmes-Weinstein monofilaments (SWMFs) was determined in the hands of 15 patients with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. In addition, the amount and distribution of sensory loss in the hand, and the relation between sensory loss, intrinsic muscle strength, and hand dexterity was explored in 45 patients. SWMF testing had good intra- and interobserver reliability with intraclass correlation coefficients of 0.91 and 0.86, respectively. The… CONTINUE READING
