Ultrasound, Clinical, and Electrophysiological Findings in Persistent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
CONCLUSIONOur data show significant functional disability, axonal nerve damage, and scar tissue formation as common PCTS causes.
ConclusionsAs a result, it can be concluded that the use of Matriderm and PRP together in the revision CTS surgery reduces the recurrence of symptoms, thus improving the recovery after the surgery.Level of evidence: Level III, therapeutic study.
In conclusion, pain and numbness 1 month after CTR predict PROMs at 6 months.PMID:34324405 | DOI:10.1080/2000656X.2021.1953041

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTSTUDY DESIGN: Double-blind randomized controlled trial.INTRODUCTION: Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common mononeuropathy that causes pain and disability in the affected hand. Kinesio taping (KT) has been recently proposed as a promising conservative approach in CTS patients.PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: To investigate the effectiveness of KT compared to a sham taping on symptoms and hand function in patients affected by mild CTS.METHODS: Patients affected by mild CTS with symptoms for at least 8 weeks were enrolled and...
ConclusionsOur results indicate that obesity causally affects a wide range of traits and comorbid diseases, thus providing an overview of the metabolic, physiological, and neuropsychiatric impact of obesity on human health.
Conclusions: Numbers of SA/DP days were higher among people with CTS than their matched references in all age groups, particularly among individuals in their early work careers, highlighting public-health relevance of the findings.PMID:33845698 | DOI:10.1177/14034948211002729
Conclusion In conclusion, mini-invasive volar technique for distal radius fractures with special designed plates in carefully selected patients allowed us to obtain good clinical and radiological results, minimal complications, fast recovery, and high-satisfactory rates. Level of Evidence This is a Level IV, case series study.PMID:33815949 | PMC:PMC8012088 | DOI:10.1055/s-0040-1721141
Nutritional Status in patients with Neuro-Behçet's disease. Turk J Med Sci. 2021 Feb 18;: Authors: ErdoĞan S, Sorgun MH, Kuzu Kumcu M, Kural MA, Rzayev S, YÜcesan C Abstract AIM: The aim of this study was to assess the nutritional status and risk factors for malnutrition in Behçet?s disease (BD) and neuro-Behçet's disease (NBD) patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Medical recordings of 74 patients with BD without neurological involvement (BDWoNI), 72 patients with NBD and 50 patients with other diseases (carpal tunnel syndrome or lumbar discopathy) were analyzed retrospective...
CONCLUSION: Following carpal tunnel release no benefits were found in using plaster casting, compared with elastic bandaging. Among these patients there was more discomfort during plaster casting compared with elastic bandaging; therefore plaster casting is not recommended following this type of surgery.

In conclusion, ultrasound-guided PDI with 4 ml of 5% dextrose provided better efficacy than with 1 and 2 ml based on symptom relief and functional improvement for CTS at the 1st, 4th, and 12th week post-injection, with no reports of severe adverse effects. There was no significant difference between the three groups at the 24th-week post-injection follow-up.Clinical Trial Registration:www.ClinicalTrials.gov, identifier NCT03598322.
CONCLUSIONS/INTERPRETATION: This is the first national study of patient-reported injuries after hand surgery treatment in Norway. The proportion of accepted claims is similar to that seen for orthopaedics. Acceptance levels were, however, higher for hand trauma cases than for disorders treated electively.
