Management of peripheral nerve problems in the upper and lower extremity using quantitative sensory testing

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Elective microsurgery of the peripheral nervous system concerns nerve decompression, neurolysis, nerve repair, and forms of nerve reconstruction with grafts or tubes. Management skills for the peripheral nerve too often rely on antiquated assessment techniques and depend upon traditional electrodiagnostic testing. Quantitative sensory testing is an approach to the evaluation of peripheral nerve function that is available now to all physicians interested in managing peripheral nerve problems. This article introduces quantitative sensory testing, with particular regard to the management of peripheral nerve problems.
