Abstract

Preservation of sensation on the dorsoulnar aspect of the hand is a recognized clinical aid in localizing ulnar nerve lesions to the distal forearm or wrist, ie, below the origin of the dorsal cutaneous branch of the nerve. Since unreliable, uncooperative, or disoriented patients may render the physical examination results inaccurate or equivocal, a more objective means of validating the aforementioned clinical sign is desirable. Jabre recently reported a method measuring nerve conduction in the dorsal cutaneous ulnar nerve that accomplishes this purpose. Concurrently the authors developed a similar technique and this communication presents the results.
