Double Crush Syndrome in the Lower Extremity
Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association, 08/01/2012
Borgia AV et al. – Upton and McComas first described double crush syndrome in 1973. The theory behind double crush syndrome postulated that a proximal lesion in a nerve would make that same nerve more vulnerable to additional distal lesions. Many of the studies investigating the possibility of the double crush syndrome involve lesions in the upper extremity with very few articles written specifically about double crush syndrome in the lower extremity.
