Association between Carpal Tunnel Cross-Sectional Area and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

SUMMARY Background. Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a prevalent peripheral compressive neuropathy. In addition to an enlargement of the median nerve cross-sectional area (CSA), the carpal tunnel CSA may be a determinant of CTS. However, the findings of studies assessing the association between carpal tunnel CSA and CTS are very limited and inconclusive. Purpose. The … Continued

Three-Dimensional Silicon Mold Analysis of the Carpal Tunnel: A Morphometric Study in Human Cadavers

SUMMARY Purpose. Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common entrapment neuropathy with an incidence rate of 6%. The significance of carpal tunnel shape and dimensions in idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome has long been debated. Recent studies have exam­ined the accuracy of previous morphometric studies, as the reported dimensions have conflicting results. The purpose of this … Continued
