We reviewed the electrophysiologic data of 100 consecutive patients with sciatic neuropathy in order to better understand this disorder. Most patients (93%) had electrodiagnostic signs of significant axonal loss. Seven patients had predominantly signs of demyelination; 6 were due to compression and 1 was idiopathic. The peroneal division was more severely affected than the tibial division in 64% of patients. Tibialis anterior EMGs were abnormal in 92%, and the EDB CMAP was low in amplitude or… CONTINUE READING
