CONCLUSIONS: The rate of carpal tunnel release among the patients diagnosed and confirmed as carpal tunnel syndrome was not higher than we expected. We should also pay more attention to the patients who did not undergo carpal tunnel release and investigate the reasons why those patients did not undergo surgery.

Abstract We experienced a rare case of carpal tunnel syndrome and rupture of the flexor digitorum profundus tendon to the index finger with a scapholunate advanced collapse wrist. We speculated that the lunate that had extruded into the carpal tunnel compressed the median nerve and caused wear of the flexor tendon following neglected perilunate subluxation. Carpal tunnel release, opponensplasty by palmaris longus tendon transfer, and a bridge graft by a half-slip of the flexor carpi radialis tendon resulted in recovery of pinch function and improvement in numbness of the hand.

CONCLUSIONS: Splinting provides symptomatic improvement in mild-to-moderate CTS and this study suggests that the wrist anthropometric measurements may influence treatment outcomes. PMID: 30428797 [PubMed - in process]

We present the case of a 66-year-old man who had persisting complaints after initial classical open carpal tunnel release. During revision a reversed palmaris profundus muscle was identified as being the cause of residual compression of the median nerve. Neurolysis with release of the palmaris profundus muscle was performed without resection of this anatomical variant and resulted in full resolution of the complaints.

AbstractMucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) comprise a group of lysosomal disorders that are characterized by progressive, systemic clinical manifestations and a coarse phenotype. The different types, having clinical, biochemical, and genetic heterogeneity, share key clinical features in varying combinations, including joint and skeletal dysplasia, coarse facial features, corneal clouding, inguinal or abdominal hernias, recurrent upper respiratory tract infections, heart valve disease, carpal tunnel syndrome, and variable neurological involvement. In the severe forms, these features usually appear in the first months of life, but ...

AbstractThe mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are a heterogeneous group of inherited metabolic disorders, each associated with a deficiency in one of the enzymes involved in glycosaminoglycan (GAG) catabolism. Over time, GAGs accumulate in cells and tissues causing progressive damage, a variety of multi-organ clinical manifestations, and premature death. Ear, nose, and throat (ENT) disorders affect more than 90% of MPS patients and appear in the early stage of MPS; also reported are recurrent otitis media and persistent otitis media with effusion, macroglossia, adenotonsillar hypertrophy, nasal obstruction, obstructive sleep apn...

n E Abstract Diagnosis of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Value of Ultrasound Compared to Nerve Conduction Studies Abstract. Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common compression syndrome of the peripheral nerves. The patient's history with nocturnal brachialgia, daytime brachialgia, nocturnal paraesthesia and daytime paraesthesia (part of the 6-item CTS symptom scale) and a specific clinical exam take part while making a diagnosis. Additional diagnostics include electrophysiological testings. A high-resolution ultrasound examination for the evaluation of the morphology of the median nerve has gained importance in diagnos...

Authors: Alemdar M Abstract Fahr disease is an idiopathic disorder characterized with deposition of calcium and a few other minerals in basal ganglia, cerebellum and subcortical brain area. A 51 years old female with the complaints of pain, numbness, tingling and weakness in both upper extremities for six months was referred to our electromyography laboratory with a suspicion of carpal tunnel syndrome. She got the diagnosis of Fahr disease upon the investigations for the convulsions that she experienced ten years ago. Beside, she had a generalized anxiety disoder. Neurological examination revealed mild to moderate ...

-- Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the nerve that runs from the forearm to the wrist becomes squeezed or compressed. The condition can be caused by an injury to the wrist, stress to the joint, rheumatoid arthritis, or repetitive motion of the...
