To investigate the use of a sonographic median-to-ulnar cross-sectional area ratio (MUR) in diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS); and to compare the MUR with currently used sonographic parameters, and electrophysiology.

Considerable debate exists in the literature about possible anomalies of ulnar nerve at wrist in carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). We systematically reviewed the literature about electrophysiologic and mo...
The most common entrapment mononeuropathy of the upper extremity is carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). It consists 90% of entrapment neuropathies. The purpose of this study was to compare cross-sectional a...
Distal sensory onset latency (DSOL), conduction velocity (SCV) and nerve action potential (SNAP) amplitudes are used in electrodiagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) beside motor conduction data. T...
The primary aim of the study was to analyze whether there is and - if so - how far a correlation between the clinical findings after carpal tunnel release (CTR) for carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and th...
An innovative diagnostic ultrasound method for carpal tunnel syndrome was proposed and compared between carpal tunnel syndrome patients and healthy volunteers.
Mucopolysaccharidosis are lysosomal storage disorders such as Hunter, Hurler, and Sanfilippo syndromes. These patients have a genetic enzyme deficiency that results in the inability to de...
Terminal latency index, residual latency and median ulnar F latency difference in carpal tunnel syndrome are specific parameters for the diagnosis
In wrists with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) the sonographically measured largest cross-sectional area (CSA) of the median nerve is increased. We compared the changes in largest CSA in wris...
The aim of the study was to determine whether there is a correlation between the increased intraneural flow as measured using Doppler ultrasound (US) and superb microvascular imaging (SMI)...
Entrapment of the MEDIAN NERVE in the carpal tunnel, which is formed by the flexor retinaculum and the CARPAL BONES. This syndrome may be associated with repetitive occupational trauma (CUMULATIVE TRAUMA DISORDERS); wrist injuries; AMYLOID NEUROPATHIES; rheumatoid arthritis (see ARTHRITIS, RHEUMATOID); ACROMEGALY; PREGNANCY; and other conditions. Symptoms include burning pain and paresthesias involving the ventral surface of the hand and fingers which may radiate proximally. Impairment of sensation in the distribution of the median nerve and thenar muscle atrophy may occur. (Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p45)
The ratio of two odds. The exposure-odds ratio for case control data is the ratio of the odds in favor of exposure among cases to the odds in favor of exposure among noncases. The disease-odds ratio for a cohort or cross section is the ratio of the odds in favor of disease among the exposed to the odds in favor of disease among the unexposed. The prevalence-odds ratio refers to an odds ratio derived cross-sectionally from studies of prevalent cases.
A value equal to the total volume flow divided by the cross-sectional area of the vascular bed.
Disease involving the median nerve, from its origin at the BRACHIAL PLEXUS to its termination in the hand. Clinical features include weakness of wrist and finger flexion, forearm pronation, thenar abduction, and loss of sensation over the lateral palm, first three fingers, and radial half of the ring finger. Common sites of injury include the elbow, where the nerve passes through the two heads of the pronator teres muscle (pronator syndrome) and in the carpal tunnel (CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME).
Descriptive anatomy based on three-dimensional imaging (IMAGING, THREE-DIMENSIONAL) of the body, organs, and structures using a series of computer multiplane sections, displayed by transverse, coronal, and sagittal analyses. It is essential to accurate interpretation by the radiologist of such techniques as ultrasonic diagnosis, MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING, and computed tomography (TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED).
