Fiber Peripheral Neuropathy Testing
Do your patients complain of pain, numbness, tingling, or burning in their toes, feet, or legs?
Your patients could be suffering from small fiber peripheral neuropathy (SFPN).
The Epidermal Nerve Fiber Density (ENFD) test is an objective method of documenting small fiber peripheral neuropathy by quantifying the terminal branches of peripheral nerves within the epidermis. The test is highly specific and sufficiently sensitive with 97% of accuracy rate. The test is recommended to perform when patients experience the following symptoms: pain and abnormal sensation (burning, prickling, shooting), as well as numbness, tightness, coldness in foot/ankle areas.
The ENFD test can also be used to predict the small nerve fiber peripheral neuropathy.
ENFD Specimen Collection Procedure
BakoDx’s ENFD reporting methodology provides an assessment of small fiber peripheral neuropathy’s degree of severity. The ENFD test report also offers treatment recommendations that empower the treating clinician with evidence-based medical information. This leads to better, more timely and cost effective health care for your patients.
