The VPT findings suggest the B-criteria to be superior to A-criteria for differentiating between patients with and without neuropathy. This study shows that neuropathy is extensive in ULDs when specific diagnostic criteria are used. Additionally it suggests the importance of a critical revision of the current diagnostic criteria of upper limb neuropathy, and the differential diagnoses concerning the MCDs. Management and prevention is highly dependent on correct diagnoses.
