Measuring peripheral nerve function: Electrodiagnostic versus neurosensory testing

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

The surgeon involved with the evaluation and treatment of peripheral nerve problems must be aware of the critical indications for the use of electrodiagnostic testing and its true and unfortunately common limitations in providing guidance for clinical care of these patients. The Pressure-Specified Sensory Device has been proven and documented by an increasing body of clinical evidence to be the functional equivalent of EDT for all clinical peripheral nerve problems with the exception of identifying radiculopathy and is superior to EDT for many peripheral nerve problems for which EDT is simply unable to provide the critical information necessary for patient care.
