distal latency

distal latency

(in electroneuromyography) the interval between the stimulation of a compound muscle and the observed response. Normal nerve conduction velocity is above 40 m/sec in the lower extremities and above 50 m/sec in the upper extremities, but age, muscle disease, temperature, and other factors can influence the velocity.

Studies which have done to analyze the effect of height on NCS parameters have shown a significant positive correlation of height with distal latency and significant negative correlation of height with conduction velocity.
The evaluations included age, gender, and 6 electromyography variables, including right/left median nerve sensory velocity, right/left fourth finger peak latency difference, and right/left median nerve motor distal latency.
Results: The highest sensitivities were found in the median sensory conduction velocity across the palm-wrist (88%), and digit I-wrist segments (80%), median motor distal latency over the APB (77%), and L-I study (76%).
Compound muscle action potential (CMAP) amplitude, distal latency, conduction velocity, and minimum F-response latency and F-wave persistence were calculated for motor NCSs.
Differences between the mean MNCSA values, median nerve sensory conduction velocity (SCV), and motor distal latency (MDL) were statistically significant between the groups.

Patients diagnosed with mild or moderate idiopathic CTS by electrophysiological examination based on reference values used in our laboratory [median motor distal latency (mMDL) >4.
Nerve conduction study showed decreased CMAP amplitude in both upper and lower limbs with conduction block in left median, left ulnar and right peroneal nerve with significantly decreased conduction velocity (<70%) and markedly increase distal latency (>130%) with absent SNAP in upper limb with preserved sural SNAP with absent 'H' and 'F reflex in both upper and lower limbs consistent with a diagnosis of AIDP.
Based on the electrophysiological findings, we propose three grades: mild (prolonged sensory distal latency more than 3.
A motor conduction study revealed a reduced compound muscle action potential amplitude, slowed nerve conduction velocity, delayed distal latency, and prolonged F latency over the median, ulnar, tibial, and peroneal nerves.
