Independent risk factors of carpal tunnel syndrome: Assessment of body mass index, hand, wrist and finger anthropometric measurements.

Background The most common neuropathy in the upper extremity is carpal tunnel syndrome. Objectives We wanted to determine the role of BMI, hand, wrist, and finger anthropometric measurements in CTS growth and testing these reported outcomes between control and CTS participants in order to compare these measured variables between control and CTS participants. Methods An over-sectional, case control study was conducted with participants recruited from a convenience sample that was diagnosed with CTS and referred for anthropometric measurements. Mean values of all dimensions were compared between cases and controls, and controls were compared between cases and controls, and logistic regression analysis revealed the presence of independent risk factors. The wrist width, wrist circumference, hand to height index, and wrist index were all significant differences between the two groups among the measured and calculated indices. The wrist index, wrist depth, and wrist width were the key factors in CTS growth in the sample, according to the regression report.
