Özet

Objective: To determine utility of comparative electrophysiological techniques in differentiating carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) in the background of diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN). Design: Ninety diabetic patients were classified into three groups: normal, CTS, and DPN according to nerve conduction studies (NCSs). The patients in the DPN group were divided into two subgroups of DPN and DPN-CTS according to clinical criteria. The comparative electrophysiological parameters including median-radial sensory distal latency difference (M-RSLD), median-ulnar sensory distal latency difference (M-USLD) and lumbrical-interosseous median-ulnar distal latency difference (LIMULD) were compared in subgroups of DPN, DPN-CTS and CTS.
