Sensory nerve action potential was recorded antidromically using ring electrodes.
The sensory responses were obtained at digit-II for median nerve and digit-V for ulnar nerve, stimulating antidromically at 14 cm.
Electrophysiology examination revealed a slower rate of nerve conduction and a lower amplitude for the radial nerve as achieved antidromically from the first digit.
Sensory NCV and amplitude of sensory nerve action potential were measured antidromically in the ulnar and sural nerve.
There was no sensory response for the left ulnar 5th digit (D5) when tested orthodromically or antidromically. There was a normal left ulnar distal motor latency (3.5 ms), but the amplitude of the compound motor action potential (CMAP) was reduced at 4.3 mV (normal >5).
From this branch point, the potential is conducted antidromically to adjacent cutaneous blood vessels.
