Abstract:   (498 Views)
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the most common entrapment syndrome. Median-ulnar motor comparative technique with Median motor technique in carpal tunnel syndrome were studied.
In 50 patients with 72 hands with clinically defined carpal tunnel syndrome and electrophysilogic evidence of Median neuropathy at wrist based upon a prolonged sensory nerve distal latency with 30 asymptomatic voluntaries underwent median-ulnar motor comparative technique and median motor technique testing protocol. Upper limit of normal for median-ulnar latency difference was 0.7 ms. Diagnostic sensitivities were 90.3% for routine median motor technique and 94.5% for median-ulnar motor technique.
This technique is easly performed and require minimal effort to incorporate into commonly used technique routine. This may be advantageous when a concomitant polyneuropathy is present and this may also help avoid technical pitfalls and aid in idendification of anatomic variants
