Ultrasound Assessment of the Displacement and Deformation of the Median Nerve in the Human Carpal Tunnel with Active Finger Motion
- Transverse Ultrasound Assessment of the Displacement of the Median Nerve in the Carpal Tunnel during Wrist and Finger Motion in Healthy Volunteers. Mitsuhiko Nanno; Takuya Sawaizumi; Norie Kodera; Yuji Tomori; Shinro Takai // Journal of Nippon Medical School;2015, Vol. 82 Issue 4, p170
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the displacement of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel during finger motion at varied wrist positions using transverse ultrasound in healthy volunteers, in order to clarify the appropriate position of a wrist splint in treating carpal...

- Investigating carpal tunnel syndrome. Lackey, Emma; Sutton, Ron // GP: General Practitioner;11/3/2003, p69
The carpal tunnel is a bony trough sealed with the flexor retinaculum, containing the median nerve and nine tendons. The median nerve supplies sensation to the thumb, index and middle fingers, part of the ring finger, and supplies the thenar eminence muscles. Any swelling in the tunnel easily...
- Unusually high bifurcation of the median nerve resulting in two separate cylindrical compartments within the transverse carpal ligament: a case report. KAMAT, Ameya S.; WOON, Kelvin // International Journal of Anatomical Variations;2014, Vol. 7, p24
The median nerve courses through the carpal tunnel before entering the hand. Numerous descriptions of this pathway exist. Several variants exist and have been documented. We report a case of an unusually high bifurcation of the median nerve into radial and ulnar branches proximal to the...
- Presence or Absence of Palmaris Longus and Fifth Superficial Flexor Digitorum; Is There Any Effect on Median Nerve Surface Area in Wrist Sonography. Enhesari, Ahmad; Saied, Alireza; Mohammadpoor, Lotfollah; Mousavi, Alia Ayatollahi; Arabnejhad, Fateme // Iranian Journal of Radiology;Dec2014, Vol. 11 Issue 4, p1
Background: Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) describes a set of symptoms caused by compression of the median nerve in the wrist, which is the most common site of nerve compression in the upper limb. This syndrome is a primary source of pain and reduced function in these patients, and the cause is...
- CARPAL TUNNEL Syndrome. Khalsa, Karta Purkh Singh // Oriental Medicine Journal;Spring2004, Vol. 12 Issue 3, p25
The article presents information related to Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). CTS is a common disabling condition most often associated with computer use. Women are more affected by CTS than men. CTS is a type of repetitive stress injury caused by the continuous, repetitive wrist motion. The...
