High Division of the Median Nerve with Unusually High Origin of the 3rd Space Common Digital Nerve

The course and branches of the MN in the wrist vary widely among the population. Despite the high prevalence of variations of the MN in the carpal tunnel reported in the literature, few major anatomical textbooks refer to such variations. Due to significant differences in the reported prevalence of such variations, extensive knowledge of the anatomy of the MN is essential for avoiding iatrogenic nerve injury [1].

Gabapentinoids are commonly prescribed for the treatment of neuropathic pain but are not recommended for the primary treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). We sought (1) to investigate the preoperative use of gabapentinoids for the treatment of CTS and (2) to determine whether preoperative exposure is associated with persistent gabapentinoid and opioid use after carpal tunnel release.

Abstract Purpose: To determine whether shock wave therapy could improve symptoms and hand function in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome.Materials and methods: Medline, Embase, Physiotherapy Evidence Database, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, OpenGrey, CNKI, VIP, Wang Fang databases, and China Biological Medicine were searched, from inception to December 2019.Results: Ten trials involving 433 patients (501 wrists) were included in this systematic review. The shock wave therapy was observed to have a significant effect on pain relief (MD: -0.60, 95% CI: -1.16 to -0.05, p = 0.03), ...
