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...

Familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP) is a life-threatening disease transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait. FAP represents sensory-motor and autonomic neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome and cardiac phenotype. Transthyretin amyloidosis is the commonest form of FAP and has endemic distribution in Sweden, Portugal, Brazil, and Japan. A patient with features raising the possibility of familial amyloid polyneuropathy were referred to our clinic for clinical, imaging and laboratory evaluation. A 60-year-old woman was referred to neurology clinic for the evaluation of length-dependent tingling sensation and neuropathic pain in both legs.

Conclusions: These findings reported in the study provide a better understanding of the impact and extent of HAVS in farmers. There is a significant prevalence of HAVS with mild symptoms of vascular component, mild to moderate symptoms of sensorineural component, and significant involvement of the musculoskeletal component. In addition, TFCC injury is correlated with HAVS.

Conclusion: Local corticosteroid injection for CTS provides a short-term improvement in neurophysiological and clinical outcomes such as pain intensity, symptom severity and functional ability.RESUMO A s índrome do túnel do carpo (STC) é a mononeuropatia mais comum causada pelo aprisionamento do nervo mediano no punho. Opções comuns de tratamento para STC incluem analgésicos orais, splinting, terapia de mão, injeções locais com esteroides ou cirurgia. Objetivo: O objetivo do presente estud o foi avaliar os resultados clínicos e eletrofisiológicos ...

A 66-year-old man had bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome and 6 years of chronic joint pain and stiffness of the shoulders, hips, and knees. He reported occasional bruising around his eyes; physical examination showed raised soft tissue masses around the sternoclavicular joints and scapulae, and laboratory examination was notable for significant levels of protein and albumin. What is the diagnosis and what would you do next?

Abstract BACKGROUND: Carpal tunnel syndrome is diagnosed based on history, physical examination, and nerve conduction testing; however, there are no clear criteria for the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome. Recently, studies have aimed to diagnose carpal tunnel syndrome through ultrasound or MRI. The purpose of this study was to compare and analyze the cross-sectional area of the median nerve between patients with carpal tunnel syndrome and a control group. METHODS: From July 2015 to August 2017, we retrospectively analyzed fishery and white-collar workers (164 people, 37 men, 127 women). Carpal tunnel synd...
