CONCLUSION: The current research identified between-group differences in median nerve cross-sectional area and the level of hand dysfunction. Understanding the interaction between the anatomy of the wrist and wrist and hand dysfunction will benefit clinicians when evaluating and treating musicians. PMID: 32870965 [PubMed - in process]

High-intensity ultrasound can be used for many therapeutic purposes. It works by raising the temperature of a targeted area of body tissue to reduce pain and promote healing. In this Mayo Clinic Minute, Dr. Janelle Van Otterloo, a Mayo Clinic physical therapist, explains how some patients may benefit from ultrasound therapy following carpal tunnel surgery. [...]

Rationale: Lipomas are common benign tumors, constituting 16% of soft tissue mesenchymal tumors. They usually occur under the skin or in the large muscles of the thigh, shoulder, or upper arm. There are few reported cases of lipomas located in the forearm and hand muscles, accounting for less than 1% of all lipomas. Patient concerns: A 47-year old man presented with a history of swelling and accompanying pain in the left wrist for 2 years. Diagnoses: The patient was diagnosed with intramuscular lipoma in the pronator quadratus. Interventions: The mass was resected completely with wide-awake technique. Outcomes:...

AbstractCarpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most frequent entrapment neuropathy of peripheral nerves, with an incidence of 1 –3 patients in 1000. CTS typically occurs between 45 and 60 years of age, and it is more frequent in women than in men. The main cause of CTS is chronic compression of the median nerve and ischemic suffering secondary to increased pressure in the carpal tunnel. There are many possible causes of C TS, which can be differentiated into idiopathic causes, which include most cases, and secondary causes. Classical CTS diagnosis is based on the patient’s clinical examination and electrophys...

Summary: Carpal tunnel release (CTR) surgery continues to evolve. Carpal tunnel syndrome remains a primarily clinical diagnosis, although ultrasound has supplemented electrodiagnostic testing as a confirmatory tool. Magnetic resonance imaging of the carpal tunnel has also showed some promise as an alternative method for the examination of the median nerve. Open CTR surgery remains the traditional, and most popular, method of CTR. Wide-Awake, with Local Anesthesia only, and No Tourniquet CTR has emerged as a means to decrease cost and improve pain control and convenience for patients. Endoscopic CTR is increasing in popul...
