Nerve Conduction Tests (NCV) in Guillian- Barre Syndrome, what is new?.

Clinical Neurophysiology
Journal Article in Press

Two sets of nerve conduction studies may suffice in reaching a reliable electrodiagnosis in Guillain–Barré syndrome

Nortina Shahrizaila et al..
► The existing electrodiagnostic criteria in Guillain–Barré syndrome are unreliable when applied at the initial stages of disease onset. ► Nerve conduction studies performed at two time courses, within 2weeks and 3–8weeks, may better reflect the final electrodiagnosis of Guillain–Barré syndrome. ► The pattern of recovery in Guillain–Barré syndrome is heterogeneous and validation of the current Erasmus Guillain–Barré syndrome outcome score in different patient populations is required.

Abstract :Recent studies have advocated the use of serial nerve conduction studies (NCS) in the electrodiagnosis of Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS). The current study aims to elucidate when and how frequent NCS can be performed to reflect the disease pathophysiology.
