Grip strength measurement is widely used in daily medical practice, and it has been reported that the grip strength decreases in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). However, conventional grip dynamomet...
Nontraumatic neuropathies of the upper limb are rare in children. In this paper, we present the latest updates in this field and also critically review the diagnosis and treatment of nerve compression syndromes in children. This review describes the most common manifestations including idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), CTS occurring as a component of lysosomal storage diseases (mucopolysaccharidosis) and hereditary neuropathies, ulnar nerve neuropathy, and atraumatic radial nerve neuropathies.
Conclusion: Given the depressive comorbidity impact on the neuropathic pain components as well as the quality of life, screening for this comorbidity should be part of the baseline ND assessment. PMID: 32617124 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Alp NB, Kaleli T, Kalay OC, Karpat F, Akdag G, Macunluoglu AC, Oral GS Abstract In carpal tunnel volume measurements, the angle of the hamatum curvature is not considered a variable, and its effect on carpal tunnel volume has not been investigated. We hypothesize that a change in the anatomical angle of the hamatum curvature changes the carpal tunnel volume. To prove our hypothesis, we used a mathematical simulation model considering the carpal tunnel as a truncated cone. We reviewed the wrist CT scans of 91 adults (>18 years of age), including 51 men and 40 women. We measured the angle of the hamatum c...
CONCLUSION: Analysis of the database indicates that fixed-wing pilot status is a protective factor against development of CTS among U.S. military officers. In contrast, helicopter pilots were found to be at an increased rate of CTS than their fixed-wing counterparts. Their incidence is comparable to their nonpilot officer peers early in their career, but is significantly increased at the senior level. Increasing age and female gender are risk factors in the military officer population as expected. Non-white race was found to increase risk in the military population, in contrast to reports of the civilian population. PM...
Authors: Roh YT, Song SW, Jeong C, Kang Y, Park IJ Abstract Lipofibromatous hamartoma (LFH) is a rare tumor of the peripheral nerves, which usually involves the median nerve. The authors reported on two rare cases of carpal tunnel syndrome due to LFH of the median nerve. A 49-year-old female patient complained of the mass and symptoms consistent with LFH. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed typical LFH findings. The symptoms were successfully ameliorated with carpal tunnel release and external neurolysis. A 37-year-old female patient complained of weakening thumb abduction and the mass where the MRI showed atyp...

CONCLUSION: MNI during hydrodissection may be reversible. MNI is indicated by an increase in MN-CSA-inlet immediately after hydrodissection. PMID: 32604424 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
