Objective: Double-step nerve stimulation test (DSST) is a repetitive nerve stimulation (RNS) technique that is performed under exercise and ischemic conditions. We tested the diagnostic significance of DSST at a distal muscle in 17 control subjects and 10 myasthenic patients who had normal conventional RNS test.
