Surgical treatment for severe cubital tunnel syndrome with absent sensory nerve conduction.

Neural Regen Res 2019 Mar;14(3):519-524

Department of Hand Surgery, Huashan Hospital, Fudan University; Key Laboratory of Hand Reconstruction, Ministry of Health; Shanghai Key Laboratory of Peripheral Nerve and Microsurgery, Shanghai, China.

For severe cubital tunnel syndrome, patients with absent sensory nerve action potential tend to have more severe nerve damage than those without. Thus, it is speculated that such patients generally have a poor prognosis. How absent sensory nerve action potential affects surgical outcomes remains uncertain owing to a scarcity of reports and conflicting results. Read More

A Median Nerve Anterior Transposition Procedure for Multi-Recurrent Hemodialysis-Related Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

J Hand Surg Asian Pac Vol 2018 Mar;23(1):90-95

* Okutsu Minimally Invasive Orthopaedic Clinic, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: Some long-term hemodialysis patients suffer from multi-recurrent carpal tunnel syndrome because amyloid originating from β-microglobulin continues to be deposited mainly in the flexor tendons, tendon sheaths and flexor retinaculum during maintenance hemodialysis. These amyloid deposits inside carpal canal (tunnel) tissues increase carpal canal pressure and this leads to compression of the median nerve. When multi-recurrent carpal tunnel syndrome occurs, previous operative scarring of soft tissue may prohibit further enlargement of the carpal canal even if any carpal canal decompression procedure is used.
