The purpose of this study was to determine no response rates of sensory nerve conduction studies and late responses in the lower limbs of healthy adults.

The subjects were 50 healthy adults (mean age, 45.6 years) without the clinical signs and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. All subjects underwent electrodiagnostic evaluation of the following sensory nerves in lower limbs: superficial peroneal, sural, proximal sural, lateral dorsal cutaneous branch of sural nerve (LDSN), and medial plantar. Examined late responses included: tibial F-wave, peroneal F-wave, and H-reflex recorded from the soleus muscle.

No response rates of sensory nerve conduction studies such as superficial peroneal, sural, proximal sural, LDSN, and medial plantar nerves were 2%, 0%, 0%, 24%, and 18%, respectively. No response rates of late responses such as tibial F-wave, peroneal F-wave, and H-reflex were 0%, 2%, and 8%, respectively. And no response rates were significantly correlated with age (p<0.05).

No response rate of sensory and late responses of lower limbs are relevant to age increments, the results should be considered for an early diagnosis of peripheral neuropathy in the lower limbs of old population. (J Korean Acad Rehab Med 2003; 27: 220-223)
