objective: Clinical utility of nerve conduction studies (NCS) of the medial plantar and dorsal sural nerves in the early detection of polyneuropathy have already been shown separately. However, at present, there is no data about the combined assessment of these two nerves in distal sensory neuropathy. In the present study, we aimed to evaluate the medial plantar and dorsal sural NCS in a group of diabetic patients with distal sensory neuropathy (DSN) and in healthy controls.
