Summary of nerve conduction data

Nerve conduction parameterNo. of patients
Additional material related to this data can be found on the Neurology Web site.
*Median, ulnar, peroneal, and posterior tibial nerves were tested.
† Median, ulnar, and sural nerves were tested.
‡ Median and ulnar nerves are tested.
§ Number and letters in parentheses represent patient number and nerve with abnormal nerve conduction.
¶In Patient 5, sural NCV was 22.7 m/s; in Patient 8, dispersion phenomenon was found in the I digital and I-II interdigital nerves of plantar nerves with the near-nerve needle sensory nerve conduction. NCV in the I digital nerve was 22.6 m/s and in the I-II interdigital nerve, 24.4 m/s.
NCS = nerve conduction study; CMAP = compound muscle action potential; NCV = nerve conduction velocity; NP = no potential; CNAP = compound nerve action potentials; PT = posterior tibial; U = ulnar; P = peroneal; M = median.
