Prevalence of anatomic variations encountered in elective carpal tunnel
In Istanbul Education and Research Hospital between January 2016 and May 2016, the median nerve of the right hand was evaluated through ultrasonography from three different regions of the carpal tunnel
in 98 patients, including 52 with diabetes and 46 controls.
We consider that in OSA patients, intermittent hypoxia is the major reason which facilitates axonal damage in the carpal tunnel
. CTS starts earlier than its symptoms in OSA.
CTS results from compression of the median nerve as it passes through the wrist within the carpal tunnel
. (2) It is the most prevalent entrapment neuropathy worldwide with significant negative effects on the quality of life of individuals suffering from the condition.
However, it has been well documented that carpal tunnel
syndrome surgery can lead to prevalent chronic postoperative pain.
Researchers estimate that 491 women per 100,000 person-years and 258 men per 100,000 person-years will develop CTS, with 109 per 100,000 person-years receiving carpal tunnel
reported double tunnel syndrome involving cubital and carpal tunnel
syndromes.11 Carpal tunnel
syndrome was associated with gouty tenosynovitis, and cubital tunnel syndrome and with epitrochlear deposition.
Clinically, the CTS has been defined as a complex of symptoms (i.e., pain, numbness, or tingling on the anterior surface of the index, middle, or radial half of the ring finger, frequently associated with weakness of hand grip, and nocturnal pain and/or numbness) resulting from compression of the median nerve at the carpal tunnel
formed by the carpal bones and the transverse ligament [7-9].

release due to palmaris longus profundus," Case Reports in Orthopedics, vol.
If treated before the problem gets too bad, carpal tunnel
surgery can be avoided with exercises and physical therapy.
syndrome (CTS) is a clinical condition that denotes the impingement of median nerve in the carpal tunnel
syndrome occurs when there is compression of the median nerve which runs through this passageway.
syndrome (CTS) is the most common compression mononeuropathy [1,2] and one of the most common conditions in the working age .
Inflammation of the tendons and irritation of a nerve at the wrist may lead to "carpal tunnel
syndrome" or simply CTS.
