Background: The medial plantar nerve (MPN) is a distal branch of the posterior tibial nerve, and various methods of nerveconduction study for MPN have been introduced so far. Hemmi et al described a new method (Hemmi's method) forrecording medial plantar sensory nerve action potentials (SNAPs), which is considered as a simple and reliable method formeasuring medial plantar SNAPs. This study was aimed to establish the normal values for the MPN conduction study amongKoreans and to compare the sensitivities of three different methods for MPN conduction study (Hemmi, Oh, and Saeed'smethod) in detecting evidence of peripheral neuropathy among diabetic patients.
Methods: In 27 healthy subjects, MPN conductionstudy using Hemmi
Key words: Diabetes mellitus, Medial plantar nerve, Sensory nerve conduction studies
