ConclusionsChronic hand pain is a prevalent and serious condition and can cause significant morbidity and disability and interferes with independence and activities of daily living. Conservative treatment remains the first line of treatment; however, when first-line treatments fail, steroid injections can usually provide benefit. In some cases, HA or Botox may also be beneficial. US-guidance is increasing in hand injection and almost ubiquitously provides safer, more effective injections. Hand surgery remains the alternative for refractory pain.

We’ve all been there. You awaken in the morning and one of your hands is completely numb. It feels dead, heavy, and simply won’t work. Perhaps there’s some tingling as well. Or, you arise from a long dinner or movie and one of your legs feels that way. Then over a few minutes — maybe you shook your hands, stamped your foot — everything goes back to normal. Until the next time. The first time this happened, it might have been worrisome. Now that you know it’s temporary and happens to everyone, it may not bother you. But did you ever wonder why in the world this happens? Read on! When the ...

Patient knowledge of the frequency with which electrodiagnostic testing (EDx) for suspected median neuropathy at the carpal tunnel addresses nuance in the distinction between normal and abnormal neurophysiology might help them make an informed decision about whether or not to have this test. We reviewed a large set of consecutive EDx for possible carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and associated medical records to determine (1) the percentage of EDx measurements within 10% of threshold values; (2) discordance between clinician and EDx diagnosis of CTS using diagnostic performance characteristics; and (3) demographic and disease ...

This work discusses challenges we have encountered in acquiring reproducible measurements of shear wave speed (SWS) in the median nerve and suggests methods for improving reproducibility. First, procedural acquisition challenges are described, including nerve echogenicity, transducer pressure and transmit focal depth. Second, we present an iterative, radon sum –based algorithm that was developed specifically for measuring the SWS in median nerves. SWSs were measured using single track location shear wave elasticity imaging (SWEI) in the median nerves of six healthy volunteers and six patients diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome.

Conclusions and Relevance Neuropathies are common in pregnancy and can result in significant impairment. Accurate diagnosis is possible during pregnancy and can usually be accomplished with bedside neurologic tests. Treatment options can be safely considered during pregnancy and can result in symptomatic improvement and reduction in chronic symptoms. Target Audience Obstetricians and gynecologists, family physician Learning Objectives After completing this activity, the learner should be better able to describe the clinical features and diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome; explain treatment options for carpal tunne...
