Nerve Ultrasound Findings before and after Surgery in a Patient with Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Type 1A and Comorbid Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

"Comorbid carpal tunnel syndrome in patients with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease is difficult due to overlapping signs and inconclusive electrodiagnostic studies. " This case report is aimed at demonstrating the value of ultrasonography in a patient with CMT1 disease and comorbid CTS. The median nerve at the carpal tunnel inlet had an elevated cross-sectional area of the median nerve at the carpal tunnel inlet with a significant decrease in the diameter within the tunnel, confirming concurrent CTS. U. S. imaging in patients with CMT is a highly useful tool for detecting comorbid CTS in patients with CMT and directing appropriate treatment. ".

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy Provides Limited Therapeutic Effects on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

"However, good evidence on the clinical effectiveness of extracorporeal shock wave therapy for carpal tunnel syndrome is still lacking. " This study was conducted to determine the effectiveness and safety of extracorporeal shock wave therapy in comparison to only treating carpal tunnel syndrome patients with night wrist splints alone. From PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials Central, all relevant studies comparing the effectiveness of extracorporeal shock wave therapy, as well as night wrist splint and cord splint alone for treating carpal tunnel syndrome were reported up to 20 January 2022. At 8u201310 and 12:u201314 weeks post-treatment, or by the ATM approach, extracorporeal shock wave therapy did not demonstrate superior efficacy relative to surgical night wrist splint alone, or without the ATM approach. In conclusion, extracorporeal shock wave therapy's therapeutic effect is brief and mostly non-significant relative to using night wrist splints alone. ".

Correlation between Electrodiagnostic Study and Imaging Features in Patients with Suspected Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

"Electrodiagnostic studies are the definitive diagnostic aid for carpal tunnel syndromes," the authors claim. Several research on the diagnostic value of X-rays in various diseases have been published recently, but CTS figures are lacking. In CTS, we investigated the connection between electrodiagnostic parameters and roentgenographic and ultrasonographic characteristics, as well as the usefulness of X-rays and U. S. for CTS. All patients with suspected CTS underwent EDXs, wrist US, and wrist X-rays. Both wrist X-rays and wrist U. S. can be used to help with CTS diagnosis as supplements to EDXs.
