Who presents to our electroneurophysiology laboratory?

, : Who presents to our electroneurophysiology laboratory?. Jpma. Journal of the Pakistan Medical Association 65(3): 245-247

To determine the distribution rate of Electroneuromyography diagnosis and correspondence between the preliminary diagnosis and final outcome. The retrospective study was conducted at the Department of Neurology, Harran University, Sanliurfa, Turkey, and comprised record of patients diagnosed with Electroneuromyography during a 24-month period from April 2011 to April 2013. SPSS 11.5 was used for data analysis. Of the 4,230 cases reviewed, 1,946 (46%) showed normal Electroneuromyography findings despite pathological Electroneuromyography findings in 2,284(54%) cases. The most common diagnosis was carpal tunnel syndrome in 721(17%) patients, followed by polyneuropathy 312(7.4%), peripheral nerve injury 238(5.6%), brachial plexus lesion 180(4.3%), myopathy 114(2.7%), lumbar radiculopathy 108(2.6%), poliomyelitis 62(1.5%) and injection neuropathy 62(1.5%). Off-label use of Electroneuromyography may be reduced by using electroneurophysiological laboratory rotation as well as adequate and comprehensive clinical evaluation of patients.
