We describe 2 cases of acute carpal tunnel syndrome due to thrombosed persistent median artery, including a case of thromboangiitis obliterans. These thrombosis might also be due to traumatic causes. No guidelines are currently available to help physicians for the management of carpal tunnel syndrome from thrombosed persistent median artery. Antiplatelet therapy, statin, anticoagulant might be helpful, and surgery has sometimes be reported as effective. PMID: 31040049 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsThis adapted technique can successfully be used to divide fascial planes over longer distances than is currently achieved in clinical practice. The improved outcomes associated with USGTR at the carpal tunnel may therefore also be achievable in fasciotomy procedures in larger anatomical compartments. Further study is required to investigate the effects of this modified USGTR technique on intracompartmental pressure.

Although a local corticosteroid injection for carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is frequently performed by palpation using anatomical landmarks, ultrasound (US) allows physicians to visualize and confirm placement of the injectate close to the median nerve, possibly improving the efficacy of the injection. The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness and complications of US-guided steroid injections with landmark-based injections for CTS.

Abstract Objectives: Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is one of the most common nerve entrapment syndromes, which has a serious impact on patients' work and life. The most effective conservative treatment is steroid injection but its long-term efficacy is still not satisfactory. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of steroid injection combined with miniscalpel-needle (MSN) release for treatment of CTS under ultrasound guidance versus steroid injection alone. We hypothesized that combined therapy could be more beneficial. Methods: Fifty-one patients with CTS were randomly allocated into two gro...

Conclusions: The results of this study may suggest the clinical efficacy of LLLT or ultrasound combined with gliding exercises in patients with mild to moderate CTS.

Seitz, Zong-Ming LiAbstractBackgroundOwing to the compressive nature of the neuropathy, patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) have prolonged distal motor latency (DML), sensory nerve latency (SNL), median nerve swelling and restricted median nerve mobility. The purpose of this study was to noninvasively augment carpal tunnel space using radioulnar wrist compression (RWC) and evaluate its effects on median nerve pathological propert...

Trice Medical said today that it inked a deal to acquire SegWay Orthopaedics for an undisclosed amount. SegWay Ortho produces solutions for minimally invasive orthopedic procedures, including its flagship Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release system, a device intended to support minimally invasive carpal tunnel surgeries, Malvern, Penn.-based Trice Medical said. The company’s SegWay platform is also used in minimally invasive surgery for cubital tunnel syndrome, gastrocnemius equinus contracture and planar fasciitis, Trice Medical added. “We’re excited for SegWay to join forces with Trice. In just over fi...
