Özet

Objective: Diagnosis of ulnar neuropathy at the elbow (UNE) by measuring the forearm-elbow velocity difference (FEVD) is subject to significant limitations because Wallerian degeneration might occur in severely affected patients. The contribution of the arm-elbow velocity difference (AEVD) in the diagnosis of UNE may be more valuable because this segment is less affected by pathologic changes.
