Ultrasound Guided - Incisionless Threaded Carpal Tunnel Release

2019-09-30 07:07:13 | BioPortfolio


The overarching long-term goal is to develop a CTS Treatment Center within the Hand Clinic that offers a variety of established and emerging treatment options in a multidisciplinary program. The ultra-minimally invasive carpal tunnel release would be one component of the program. Furthering the knowledge with regard to ultra-minimally invasive carpal tunnel release outcomes would facilitate the Hand Clinics ability to offer this procedure as a component of individualized care in the CTS Treatment Center to facilitate delivery of the appropriate level of care to the right patient.

A Comparison of Incisionless Ultrasound Guided Thread Carpal Tunnel Release and Mini Open Carpal in Patients With Bilateral Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

To compare the incisionless thread carpal tunnel release with the standard mini-open carpal tunnel release (standard of care) in patients with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome. Patients wi...

The Use of Ultrasound to Quantify Muscle Overlying the Carpal Tunnel

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common condition that still lacks a reliable, objective screening test. Many anatomical aspects of the syndrome have been studied including the dimensions...

Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release Via a Monoportal Approach.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a very common condition in hand surgery. The gold standard in therapy is the surgical release of the flexor retinaculum. Endoscopic carpal tunnel release provides superior co...

Value of cross-sectional area of median nerve by MRI in carpal tunnel syndrome.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is diagnosed based on history, physical examination, and nerve conduction testing; however, there are no clear criteria for the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome. Recently, st...

Sex-related differences in carpal arch morphology.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the sex-based differences in the carpal arch morphology. Carpal arch morphology was quantified using palmar bowing and area of the arch formed by the trans...

Normal variations in position and relations of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel: a cross-sectional observational study using clinical MRI.

A standard relationship of the median nerve to neighbouring tendons in the carpal tunnel has been described but descriptions of normal variations are limited. The aim of this study is to describe the ...

Effectiveness of platelet rich plasma injections for non-surgical management of carpal tunnel syndrome: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

To systematically review and evaluate the efficacy and complication profile of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection into the carpal tunnel for management of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

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).

The articulations between the various CARPAL BONES. This does not include the WRIST JOINT which consists of the articulations between the RADIUS; ULNA; and proximal CARPAL BONES.

Disorders of the peripheral nervous system associated with the deposition of AMYLOID in nerve tissue. Familial, primary (nonfamilial), and secondary forms have been described. Some familial subtypes demonstrate an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance. Clinical manifestations include sensory loss, mild weakness, autonomic dysfunction, and CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1349)

The CARPAL BONES; METACARPAL BONES; and FINGER PHALANGES. In each hand there are eight carpal bones, five metacarpal bones, and 14 phalanges.
