A light at the end of the carpal tunnel? CDC finds jobs most at risk for syndrome
A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released on Thursday shows there are far more jobs that put workers at risk for the carpal tunnel.
Adhesion neuropathy of the median nerve with persistent pain can be a challenging problem. Currently, coverage of the median nerve with a well-vascularized soft tissue is deemed necessary after secondary neurolysis. Herein, we reviewed the outcomes of seven patients with a persistent median nerve neuropathy after a primary open carpal tunnel release or a median nerve repair, treated with neurolysis and median nerve wrapping with radial artery perforator adipose flaps. During the revision surgery, after a careful and complete neurolysis of the scarred median nerve, the distally based radial artery perforator adipose flap wi...
The national survey, published Oct. 9, asked respondents their level of concern about eye strain, carpal tunnel and other potential health consequences of mobile device use. Only 47% said they were concerned about poor posture and how it affected their health.

ConclusionThe ultrasound-guided percutaneous release of the carpal tunnel is demonstrated to be a procedure with a rapid learning curve.
Hook of the hamate fractures can be treated by various methods including cast immobilization, open reduction, and internal fixation and excision. Usually, those individuals who elect for excision have acute fractures and need to return to sporting activity or work quickly or have nonunions with persistent symptoms. There is a paucity of descriptions in the literature and textbooks of a technique to safely excise the hook of the hamate. The authors present a method of safely exposing and removing the hook of the hamate by visualizing the potential structures at risk: the motor branch of the ulnar nerve, the ulnar digital ne...
Background: Corticosteroid injection is beneficial in treating carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) due to its anti-inflammatory effects. However, its side effects limit widespread usage. Recently, several studies have found that polydeoxyribonucleotide offers anti-inflammatory capabilities with fewer side effects, making it an ideal alternative. Nevertheless, there has been no study on its effectiveness in patients with CTS. Therefore, we evaluate the effectiveness of polydeoxyribonucleotide in patients with CTS. Based on the criteria, 30 patients with CTS who received two-consecutive polydeoxyribonucleotide injections (with a ...
