AbstractThe peripheral sensorineural disturbances in vibration-exposed HAVS subjects accompanied with arteriographically typical peripheral arterial disorders, such as hypothenar hammer syndrome (HHS), thromboangiitis obliterans (TAO), and arteriosclerosis obliterans (ASO), were studied. The study has provided evidence of whether peripheral circulation disorders of HAVS are always accompanied with peripheral sensorineural abnormalities. All the HAVS subjects were male with mean ages and clinical diagnoses were made by arteriography of upper and lower extremities, in addition to the routine clinical examinations for HAyS. Among 23 HAVS subjects with typical arterial disorders, nine cases are found to have delayed or prolonged electrophysiological parameters. The most common neuropathies are found to be mild carpal tunnel syndrome and ulnar neuropathy.
