A Review on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Various Terminologies

Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common form of neuropathy disorder. Progress in CTS biology science has made it possible the development of novel diagnostic tools such as magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasonography diagnosis of CTS. This review summarizes the most recent medical literature on CTS in terms of symptoms, pathophysiology, and various aspects of clinical diagnosis therapy. This approach is more safe than traditional steroid injection and splinting procedures, but surgical intervention has been established. In this article, the entire medical aspects of CTS, from educating medicine professionals to understanding this disease are comprehensively reviewed.

Basal joint arthroplasty and carpal tunnel release comparing a single versus double incision: a prospective randomized study

We wanted to know if carpal tunnel release during basal joint arthroplasty was as safe as a two-incision surgery in patients with concomitant carpal tunnel syndrome and basal thumb joint osteoarthritis. Four versus zero patients in the double-incision group experiencing pillar pains had comparable, progressive improvement in all symptom-, function-, and pain-related outcomes, with mean surgery time significantly shorter with the single-incision technique and four versus zero patients in the single-incision group experiencing pillar pain.

Electrodiagnostic signs of carpal tunnel syndrome in ocular pseudoexfoliation syndrome

Purpose: Objective: To determine the occurrence and severity of electrodiagnostic signs of carpal tunnel syndrome in patients of ocular pseudoexfoliation, compare them to normal controls. Methods 60 patients with PEX were recruited from May 2019 to February 2021, and the results were compared to 59 healthy controls. Both hands were tested for occurrence and severity of ED-CTS in both hands by a complete ophthalmologic examination and nerve conduction velocity test at the median nerve. In PEX patients, there were 38. 3% and 20. 3% in control subjects, respectively.

Ultrasonography for the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome: an umbrella review

Background Carpal tunnel syndrome is a disorder that has been treated with varying success by numerous sonographic modalities and parameters. Our umbrella review sought to summarize the findings from systematic reviews and meta-analyses into the use of ultrasound imaging to diagnose CTS. Several parameters were found in the cross-sectional region of the median nerve at the carpal tunnel inlet's highest reliability and diagnostic accuracy. The degree of CSA enlargement was correlated to CTS severity. As median nerve stiffness and vascularity at the wrist increased in these patients, median nerve stiffness and vascularity at the wrist could provide additional insight into CTS examination. Conclusions Sonography is a simple way to diagnose CTS, with inlet CSA being the most accurate measure. Sonoelastography and Doppler ultrasound can both be useful tools to confirm CTS diagnoses. Particularly in the presence of concomitant neuromuscular disease, further research is required to expand the use of sonography for diagnosing CTS.

A prospective cohort study: platelet-rich plasma combined with carpal tunnel release treating carpal tunnel syndrome

Background PRP injections have been shown to improve the health of people with mild to moderate Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. However, carpal tunnel transplantation was still a recommended therapy for people with moderate to severe CTS. Methods To see if adjuvant PRP therapy would improve the prognosis when using CTR, we included 82 patients. Results CTR combined with PRP therapy improved the VAS, BCTQ-SSS, and BCTQ-FSS in patients with moderate symptoms within one month after surgery.
