The Influence of Transverse Carpal Ligament Thickness on Treatment Decisions for Idiopathic Mild to Moderate Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Ann Plast Surg 2020 Apr 22. Epub 2020 Apr 22.

From the Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Eulji University College of Medicine, Daejeon, Korea.

Purpose: The main cause of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is pathological changes in the flexor synovium, which is a known cause of pressure elevation in the carpal tunnel. The importance of the transverse carpal ligament (TCL) in the pathogenesis of CTS has hitherto been overlooked. However, the TCL significantly affects carpal biomechanics; the TCL is known to affect the carpal bone to a greater extent when intra carpal tunnel pressure is high. Read More

Complications of Intramedullary Fixation for Distal Radius Fractures in Elderly Patients: A Retrospective Analysis Using McKay's Complication Checklist.

J Hand Surg Asian Pac Vol 2018 Mar;23(1):71-75

† Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: Intramedullary fixation for distal radius fractures is reported to be free of hardware irritation and less invasive than other fixation methods. Some specific complications associated with intramedullary fixation, such as radial nerve sensory neuritis, have been reported, but no study has focused on the complication rates of intramedullary fixation for distal radius fractures in the elderly population. Furthermore, no studies have analyzed common complications, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and flexor tenosynovitis including trigger finger, among patients with distal radius fractures treated by intramedullary fixation based on a comprehensive complication checklist.
