1. [The effects of standardised cold and compression therapy on swelling, pain and functional outcome after division of the transverse carpal ligament in carpal tunnel syndrome]. (PubMed)

[The effects of standardised cold and compression therapy on swelling, pain and functional outcome after division of the transverse carpal ligament in carpal tunnel syndrome]. This prospective, randomised study examines the effect of standardised cold compression therapy on swelling, pain and functional outcome after division of the transverse carpal ligament in carpal tunnel syndrome in comparison to cooling alone.Fifty patients for division of the transverse carpal ligament were randomised (...) into two groups. In group 1, postoperative conventional cooling therapy was performed. Group 2 was given standardised cooling and compression therapy with the Cryo/Cuff™-system (3 × 10 min twice daily). Follow-up examinations were performed on days 1, 8 and 21 after the operation. One patient in group 1 and 3 patients in group 2 could not be followed up. Test parameters were pain, swelling, mobility, strength, and the DASH and MHQ score.There were no significant differences between the two groups

% false positive and false negative rates - essentially no better than tossing a coin. DURKAN’S CARPAL COMPRESSION TEST - this relies upon direct pressure applied externally by the examiner over the carpal tunnel to increase the pressure. It can performed by pressing with the examiners thumbs ( ) or with a device designed to apply a standard amount of pressure ( ). The former method is difficult to standardise, the latter requires the instrument thus limiting its easy applicability in the ordinary (...) Diagnosing carpal tunnel syndrome - Provocative tests Provocative tests | Carpal-Tunnel.net Provocative tests There is a long history of provocative clinical tests for CTS. By this term we mean physical manoeuvers which can be carried out in the clinic with little or no equipment with the aim of temporarily increasing the carpal tunnel pressure and provoking symptoms. The oldest and still the best of these is Phalen’s test but details of all the ones I know of are given below. These tests

5. The Accuracy of the Scratch Collapse Test Performed by Blinded Examiners on Patients With Suspected Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Assessed by Electrodiagnostic Studies. (PubMed)

The Accuracy of the Scratch Collapse Test Performed by Blinded Examiners on Patients With Suspected Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Assessed by Electrodiagnostic Studies. A diagnostic maneuver known as the "scratch-collapse test" (SCT), to aid in the diagnosis of compressive upper limb neuropathies such as carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), has been described. There is a wide variability in the sensitivity and specificity values reported to date, and the reason for this discrepancy is unclear. The purpose (...) of this study was to evaluate the utility of the SCT performed by examiners blinded to the meaning of the examination.Forty consecutive patients referred to a single physiatrist for electrodiagnostic testing for the evaluation of suspected CTS were included in the study. The patients were evaluated by blinded physician examiners with no knowledge of the SCT. The examiners were instructed on the maneuver but were not told the purpose of the test or the significance of a "positive" or "negative" response

8. Endoscopic release for carpal tunnel syndrome. (PubMed)

Endoscopic release for carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common compressive neuropathy of the upper extremity. It is caused by increased pressure on the median nerve between the transverse carpal ligament and the carpal bones. Surgical treatment consists of the release of the nerve by cutting the transverse carpal ligament. This can be done either with an open approach or endoscopically.To assess the effectiveness and safety of the endoscopic techniques of carpal (...) no language restrictions. We reviewed the reference lists of relevant articles and contacted trial authors. We also searched trial registers for ongoing trials. We performed a preliminary screen of searches to November 2013 to identify any additional recent publications.We included any randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and quasi-RCTs comparing endoscopic carpal tunnel release (ECTR) with any other surgical intervention for the treatment of CTS.We used standard methodological procedures expected

Treating carpal tunnel syndrome - When surgery fails When surgery fails | Carpal-Tunnel.net When surgery fails The analysis of what has gone wrong when carpal tunnel surgery has not worked is often challenging, especially so if you did not meet the patient before surgery. My usual strategy is as follows. Was it CTS to begin with? Try to obtain a retrospective history of what the symptoms used to be like before surgical interference. Were any confirmatory tests carried out and what were (...) to have incomplete division of the transverse carpal ligament while the new group were more likely to have a nerve injury of some kind but neither of these observations were absolute rules - 2 patients with persistent symptoms were found to have nerve injuries and 14 with new symptoms had incomplete release. One can guess the explanations for these - a nerve injury can produce the same loss of function in a nerve as a severe compression and the symptoms of the two things may therefore

Discovering an Anatomic Variant of the Palmaris Profundus during Open Carpal Tunnel Release A 46-year-old female presented after 3 years of steadily increasing numbness in her hands bilaterally with worse symptoms in her right hand. She reported nighttime paresthesia and exacerbation of her symptoms while writing, typing, and driving. Tinel's and carpal tunnel compression test were positive bilaterally. During the right hand carpal tunnel release, a layer of synovium was present deep (...) to the carpal ligament with a tendinous portion running midline longitudinally along the median nerve. This layer was an anomalous palmaris profundus (PP) tendon within the carpal tunnel, which inserted distally in the palmar fascia. The PP tendon was freed and released. The PP is a rare muscle variation of the forearm and wrist, and although it has no function, it has been reported as a cause of median nerve compression at the wrist. More commonly, it is an incidental finding during carpal tunnel surgery

16. The Median Nerve at the Carpal Tunnel … and Elsewhere (PubMed)

The Median Nerve at the Carpal Tunnel … and Elsewhere The median nerve (MN) may be affected by various peripheral neuropathies, each of which may be categorized according to its cause, as either an extrinsic (due to an entrapment or a nerve compression) or an intrinsic (including neurogenic tumors) neuropathy. Entrapment neuropathies are characterized by alterations of the nerve function that are caused by mechanical or dynamic compression. It occurs because of anatomic constraints (...) at specific locations including sites where the nerve courses through fibro-osseous or fibromuscular tunnels or penetrates a muscle. For the diagnosis of peripheral neuropathies, physicians traditionally relied primarily on clinical findings and electrodiagnostic testing with electromyography. However, if further doubt exists, clinicians may ask for an additional imaging evaluation.

17. Carpal tunnel syndrome after an electrical injury: a case report and review of literature (PubMed)

Carpal tunnel syndrome after an electrical injury: a case report and review of literature Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is prevalent in workers who utilize hand-held vibration tools, engage in tasks involving repetitive wrist movements, and suffer from wrist overuse. Although electrical injuries involving the median nerve are a relatively rare but plausible cause of CTS, the related literature is limited. Here, we report a case of CTS in which the symptoms developed after an electrical injury (...) , and review the related literature.The patient was a right-handed male electrician who often used hand tools but had no symptoms of CTS before the injury, with the left hand as the point of entry. Typical symptoms of CTS manifested after the electrical injury, and a nerve conduction velocity test confirmed the presence of severe CTS in the left hand. Therefore, we believe that the symptoms can be largely attributed to the electrical injury.The available literature supports the occurrence of delayed
