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

Osseous Ankle Morphology and Recurrent Lateral Sprains: a Case-Control Study

SUMMARY Background. This study evaluated the relationship between intrinsic osseous ankle morphological characteristics and recurrent lateral ankle sprain history. Methods. Fifty-two patients with recurrent lateral ankle sprain history were age- and sex-matched with 46 healthy control group subjects. Standardized anterior-posterior and lateral ankle-foot radiographs were taken and morphometric tibial arc length (TiAL), ankle stability angle … Continued
