Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Injection Procedure

Do not use this technique in recurrent carpal tunnel syndrome for a repeat procedure when an open procedure was done previously. Carpal tunnel syndrome Moderate Carpal Tunnel Syndrome with Compression of the Palmar Cutaneous Branch of the Median Nerve Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most common conditions of the hand. Swelling of the median nerve or compression of the median nerve by surrounding structures causes sensory and motor disturbances (Fig. 12 1). Chronic repetitive stress on the carpal tunnel and the median nerve within it is the most common cause of idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome. Occupations that require stress on the wrist, such as typing and carpentry, often lead to a high incidence of carpal tunnel syndrome. Sporting activities that involve repetitive or continuous flexion and extension of the wrist, such as cycling, throwing sports, racquet sports, archery, and gymnastics, also predispose individuals to carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome can be...

Tears of the Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex

A 19-year-old right hand dominant college student presented for evaluation of left wrist pain 5 months after closed treatment for a distal radius fracture. The pain was ulnar sided and associated with activities, particularly those involving maximal extension or pronation supination against resistance (e.g., turning a doorknob on a heavy door). There was no clicking. The patient's injury had been treated in a longarm cast for 8 weeks. Office notes from the referring physician document a diagnosis of distal radius fracture and distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) dislocation reduced and treated in a closed manner. The patient was referred for persistent ulnar sided wrist pain.

Carpometacarpal Joint Dislocation Thumb Imaging

Cmc Dislocation Ray

Clinical suspicion is imperative in making this diagnosis. Patients present with pain and swelling of the hand. A dorsal lump, or in the case of the less frequent volar dislocation, a volar lump or thickening of the palm, is present. However, this may be masked by marked generalized swelling of the hand. In the case of a volar dislocation, careful examination of the median nerve is important due to the possibility of an acute carpal tunnel syndrome. In addition, the function of the motor branch of the ulnar nerve should be examined due to its proximity to the fifth car-pometacarpal joint. Dislocation of the fifth carpometacarpal joint may result in an ulnar deviation of the little finger. Also there is often impairment of the grasping strength due to pain as well as a loss of the mechanical advantage due to loss of the longitudinal alignment of the hand.

Triscaphe Degenerative Arthritis

A 62-year-old right hand dominant woman who works as a polisher presented with right wrist pain progressively worsening over the last 6 months. She noted significant and progressive difficulty with strength and holding onto small objects. She denied any trauma and noted no specific previous treatment.

Scapholunate Advanced Collapse

Scaphoid Non Union Advanced Collapse

A 54-year-old right hand dominant man who works as a museum director presented with a 3-year history of gradually increasing pain, swelling, and loss of mobility in his right wrist. He also noted the recent onset of nocturnal paresthesias in the sensory distribution of the median nerve. There was no history of trauma, although he had played professional basketball for 12 years. A wrist splint, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory medication, and therapeutic modalities did not relieve his symptoms. The right wrist had an effusion and was tender over the radial styloid-scaphoid joint. Range of motion was restricted to less than 50 of the contralateral side with complete loss of radial deviation. Extension and radial deviation were most painful. A scaphoid shift test provoked pain but no scaphoid subluxation. Provocative signs for carpal tunnel syndrome were positive however, there was no thenar atrophy. Radiographic imaging included posteroanterior, lateral, and scaphoid oblique views. There...

Surgical Management

Kirschner Wire

During the 7 days before surgery, a splint was applied and the upper extremity maximally elevated to reduce swelling. Operative procedures included open reduction and internal fixation of the scaphoid with an antegrade screw and 0.054-inch Kirschner wire, closed reduction and pinning of the distal radial fracture with Kirschner wires, repair of the scapholunate interosseous ligament, intercarpal pin stabilization, and open carpal tunnel release (Fig. 59 2). The carpal tunnel release was performed through an incision that crossed the distal wrist skin flexion crease obliquely before terminating at the distal end of the ligament in line with the third web space. secure fixation of the scaphoid, the distal radial intraarticular fracture is reduced and rigidly fixed. Derotation of the extended lunate and flexed scaphoid with provisional Kirschner-wire joysticks assists in Kirschner-wire fixation of the scapholunate complex. The dorsal surgical approach to the acutely fractured scaphoid...

Chemotherapy Extravasation

Chemotherapy Extravasation

The patient was taken to the operating room immediately for emergency fas-ciotomies. A dorsal, longitudinal incision was made from the lateral epicondyle to the mid-carpus, and the dorsal forearm fascia was completely released. A palmar incision was then performed, from the antecubital region to the mid-palm in the hand. The lacertus fibrosus was released, as well as the entire volar forearm fascia. The deep volar compartment was also explored and the fascia overlying the deep volar muscle layer was released. Distally, a carpal tunnel release was also performed (Figs. 26-4 and 26-5).

Stages of a perilunate instability. Stage I involves a break or tear of the scapholunate ligament complex. Stage II interrupts the lunate capitate relationship with the force of the injury moving through the space ofPoirier. In a Stage IIIperilunate instability, the lunate-triquetial connection is lost and the carpus separates from the lunate. In Stage IV the lunate dislocates from its fossa often into the carpal tunnel and the capitate aligns with the radius. Figure 62 5. Stages of a perilunate instability.

History and Clinical Presentation

A 24-year-old right hand dominant man sustained a dorsiflexion injury to his right wrist while trying to protect himself from a falling shelf at work. He continued to work with pain for about 6 weeks before he presented to an orthopedic surgeon. He was treated nonoperatively for a year and a half, but he continued to complain of ulnar-sided wrist pain and clunking. He had a positive midcarpal clunk with ulnar deviation, but his midcarpal instability was not as dramatic as his symptoms of ulnar abutment. Radiographs demonstrated ulna positive variance and mild VISI deformity. A triple-phase arthrogram revealed tears of the TFCC and lunotriquetral ligament. The patient was thus given a diagnosis of ulnar abutment syndrome. After failing conservative treatment (nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs, steroid injections, splinting), he was taken to the operating room for arthroscopic debridement of the torn TFCC and lunotriquetral ligaments, and open wafer excision of the right distal ulna....

Osteoarthritis Proximal Interphalangeal Joint Silastic Implants

At that time, the right long finger PIP joint degeneration compounded by stenosing flexor tenosynovitis of the index and long fingers became sufficiently painful to warrant surgical intervention. The past medical history was additionally significant for hypertension, mild depression, bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome responsive to conservative management and prior cholecystectomy. Medications included Verelan, Lozol, Voltaren, and Prozac.

Macrodactyly

Macrodactyly Tunnel Syndrome

There is no medical treatment for this condition, so options for management include observation with adaptation, or surgical intervention. Surgical intervention options include bulk and length reduction with soft tissue debulking, hypertrophic nerve resection, osteotomy or ostectomy, joint resection fusion, and or epiphys-iodesis carpal tunnel median nerve decompression or amputation (partial, digital, The goal of surgical intervention in the child is to attempt to reduce deformity. The surgery will never make the digit normal, with residual size discrepancy, scarring, and stiffness persisting. There is no right age for surgical intervention, and an individualized plan needs to be developed depending on the rate of growth and the severity of the deformity. In the adult, surgical intervention may be undertaken to reduce cosmetic deformity, to improve function, or to alleviate carpal tunnel symptoms due to compression of an enlarged median nerve. Figure 83 3. Decompression of the carpal...

Pisiform Ligaments

Henle Ligament

Examination of the patient with symptoms of ulnar nerve compression should begin at the neck to rule out cervical disk disease or arthritis. Provocative maneuvers including Adson's, hyperabduction, military brace positioning, and 3-minute elevation should be used to screen for thoracic outlet syndrome. Range of motion of the elbow should be observed and the ulnar nerve palpated during flexion-extension to determine subluxation. Percussion over the ulnar nerve can be performed to evoke a positive Tinel's sign however, nearly 24 of asymptomatic people have this finding. The elbow flexion test in cubital tunnel syndrome is analogous to the wrist flexion test (Phalen's test) in diagnosing carpal tunnel syndrome. It is performed by maximally flexing the patient's elbow with forearm supination and wrist extension. Symptoms of paresthesias in the ulnar nerve distribution within 1 minute constitute a positive test. False positives, however, occur in 24 of the normal population. Plain...

Scaphoid Tubercle Pain

Immobilization, antiinflammatory medication, and a corticosteroid injection may provide relief in the setting of a primary tendinitis (Fig. 31-4). Chronic processes may be resistant and often require decompression of the fibro-osseous tunnel. In the setting of an FCR rupture, simple debridement of the stump can provide effective pain relief. A wrist splint placed in neutral rotation often will alleviate all the pain. Weeks PM. A cause of wrist pain Non-specific tenosynovitis involving the flexor carpi radialis.

Wartenberg S Sign

Wartenberg Sign Ulnar Nerve

There was no apparent forearm or hypothenar wasting of the left upper extremity. Range of motion of the elbow was measured as 0 to 125 degrees bilaterally. Areas were then examined for tenderness or ulnar nerve subluxation. There was tenderness with deep palpation over the cubital tunnel. Tinel's test was negative at the cubital tunnel, carpal tunnel, and Guyon's canal. The patient was examined for abduction of the small finger with extension (Wartenberg's sign), which was negative. Earle's test was negative (Fig. 15 1). Grip strength measured 60 pounds on the left and 65 pounds on the right. Intrinsic motor strength was 5 5 bilaterally, and there was no evidence of claw hand. On sensory examination, the patient had paresthesias in the fifth digit and ulnar aspect of the fourth digit. Two-point discrimination was greater than 10 mm in the fifth digit and ulnar aspect of the fourth digit, and less than 6 mm in the first, second, and third digits.

Neurological features

There are several neurological features of RA. The most common is nerve entrapment, the best example of which is carpal tunnel syndrome. Cervical myelopathy is a further example, which develops due to synovitis involving the cervical spine. These types of nerve entrapment occur due to local factors and are not limited to those with sero-positive disease. Other neurological features, occur as 'classical' extra-articular features in seropositive

Radial tunnel syndrome

Anterior lateral elbow, distinct from the lateral epicondyle, may be present. Direct pressure over this same area should reproduce the symptoms. Weakness and pain during active extension of the middle finger can be present but is not necessarily diagnostic of this condition. Nerve conduction studies and electromyography have not been helpful the way they are in carpal tunnel syndrome.

Abnormalities of sensation

Carpal tunnel syndrome is produced by compression of the median nerve at the wrist. As the nerve passes through the unyielding carpal tunnel, it is at risk for compression by the transverse carpal ligament. In most patients, no specific etiology can be determined, but thickening and proliferation of the peritendinous synovium is seen. This condition is very common in RA, in diabetes, during or after pregnancy, and after wrist fracture. It is also seen in postmenopausal women and in patients with the myxedema of thyroid disease. 1. A history of wrist pain and paresthesias in the thumb, index finger, and long finger (the median nerve distribution), frequently occurring at night, is fairly typical. The patient may report being awakened by the pain and paresthesias and needing to shake the hand for relief. The lack of muscle activity at night allows fluid accumulation, and wrist flexion during sleep is thought to account for this exacerbation of symptoms. Patients may also report...

Clinical presentation

Joint, tendon, and bursal involvement. Symmetric polyarthritis with variable degrees of damage and inflammation of the hands and feet, mainly the wrists, MCP joints, PIP joints, MTP joints, elbows, knees, ankles, and shoulders is characteristic of RA. Early changes include ulnar styloid prominence, and later deformities resulting from combinations of joint and tendon damage may evolve, including ulnar deviation, boutonniere and swan neck deformities. Flexor tenosynovitis can lead to triggering of the fingers and may eventuate in rupture of tendons. Extensor tenosynovitis is seen as swelling over the dorsum of the wrist, and flexor tenosynovitis can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome from median nerve entrapment. Olecranon bursitis often presents as swelling at the tip of the elbow synovial extensions, known as Baker's cysts, appearing from the knee to the medial calf region may mimic phlebitis. Spinal disease is limited to the cervical region and, in patients with severe disease, may...

General approach to the patient with rheumatoid arthritis

It is important for the RA patient to maintain a balance between resting and exercising joints that falls short of causing significant pain or fatigue. Systemic and articular rest are both important. Although the classic recommendations for short rest periods during the day (1 hour of bed rest at mid-morning and mid-afternoon) remain, they are incompatible with the work requirements of most people. At times, hospitalization may become necessary to impose a strict balance of rest and activity that cannot be followed by the patient at home. Articular inflammation may be decreased by adequate rest of the affected joints with either bed rest or splints. The purpose of splints is to provide rest for inflamed joints, relieve spasm, and prevent deformities or reduce deformities already present. Wrist splints are particularly useful during bouts of acute wrist synovitis and for the management of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Growth Hormone Secreting Tumors

Most surgeons rely on a postoperative glucose tolerance test with growth hormone (GH) levels. Unless special arrangements exist most laboratories do not run GH assays every day. As a consequence, the patient has usually been discharged before the results return, because most patients with acromegaly have short in-patient stays. The initial reduction in GH levels to cure or semicure levels (< 10 ng mL, 20 mU L) often lead to early and significant improvement in the symptoms they had, particularly sweating and carpal tunnel. Even obstructive airway symptoms can ameliorate. Some experts recommend that no decision should be made before the standard 6-wk period has elapsed and the patient retested (Fahlbusch, personal communication).

Space Occupying Lesion Aberrant Nerve

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Mri Bowing Ratio

Carpal tunnel syndrome The most common neuropathy of the upper extremity is the carpal tunnel syndrome, with an estimated incidence of nearly 1 annually, or almost 2.8 million new cases per year, and prevalence of 0.125 to 5.8 74 . The syndrome is most often found in patients between 30 and 60 years of age, has a male female ratio of 1 5, and is bilateral in as many as 50 of patients. Clinical complaints include often transient and reversible pain and paresthesia in the median nerve distribution. In wrist flexion, in asymptomatic individuals, the median nerve moves radially and posteriorly and becomes interposed between the flexor tendons 75 . The median nerve is more likely to remain adjacent to the flexor retinaculum during wrist flexion in patients who have carpal tunnel syndrome. This lack of motion of the median nerve may predispose it to compression and subsequent carpal tunnel syndrome. Other theories proposed to account for carpal tunnel syndrome include repeated compression...

Imaging of Upper Extremities

Increased risk for injury in many sports, and imaging of the small anatomic soft-tissue structures of these areas can be challenging. Two articles discuss the role of complex imaging modalities in these anatomic areas. The first provides a comprehensive review of MRI of ulnar-sided wrist pain, and the second deals with the imaging of the fingers and thumb. Several unique upper-extremity injuries are seen in the pediatric age group, and these are mostly related to the immature and developing skeleton. Special imaging considerations of pediatric sports-related injuries are discussed in a separate article. The next article reviews the utility of ultrasound in the evaluation of upper-extremity injuries and provides a comparison of the sensitivity and specificity of ultrasound as it compares to MRI. Finally, in response to the proliferation of low-field-strength magnets, particularly in the outpatient setting, a thorough literature review is provided comparing the use of low-field- and...

Lymphoproliferative disorders

Amyloid arthropathy attributed to deposition of AL protein is associated with dysproteinemias, such as multiple myeloma. It occurs in up to 5 of myeloma patients and is more common in men and those with l light chains. This arthropathy can mimic RA and is associated with carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder pad sign, and nodules. Erosions are rarely noted. Additional clinical clues that warrant consideration of amyloidosis are hepatosplenomegaly, congestive heart failure, macroglossia, pinch purpura, raccoon eyes, and nephrosis. Biopsy sites to establish a tissue diagnosis include abdominal fat, rectum, synovium, and bone marrow. (see Chapter 51, section I.)

Differential diagnosis

Activities that accentuate the pain are avoided for 8 to 12 weeks. Oral NSAIDs should be given acutely for pain relief. Should symptoms persist, injection of 40 mg of methylprednisolone acetate (Depo-Medrol) with 1 mL of 1 lidocaine into the point of maximum tenderness usually provides some relief. When the acute pain has subsided, exercises directed at strengthening the extensor muscles are started. A flexibility program is also started, and ice is used judiciously. A forearm band may reduce tension on the extensor muscle origin and provide relief in some patients. A volar wrist splint may also be helpful. Surgical excision of the degenerative tissue at the origin of the extensor carpi radialis brevis may be necessary in patients who fail conservative treatment.

Localized amyloidosis

Clinical picture and diagnosis. b2-Microglobulin amyloidosis involves the musculoskeletal system, with infiltration of the carpal ligaments, formation of bone cysts (frequently in apposition to the joints), scapulohumeral periarthritis, stiff and painful fingers, and destructive cervical spondyloarthropathy with cyst formation and occasional odontoid fracture. Cervical disease usually takes the form of vertebral end plate erosion without osteophyte formation. Rapid joint destruction then usually follows. Median nerve compression is very common with its attendant carpal tunnel syndrome.

Management

The forearm may develop compartment syndrome following trauma or surgery, especially when the deep fascia has been closed. A supracondylar fracture of the distal humerus may also be associated with compartment syndrome, when the circulation has been interrupted. Classically the volar compartments are affected. The forearm is decompressed through a longitudinal volar incision, zigzagged across the wrist into the palm, to include release of the carpal tunnel. It is uncommon to need to release the dorsal compartments through a second dorsal approach. The same approach to wound care is required.

FPolymyositis

RP can result from a thoracic outlet syndrome. Compression (e.g., by a cervical rib or a pectoralis minor tendon) of brachial plexus sympathetic fibers and the subclavian artery have been implicated. RP may also be seen in patients with the carpal tunnel syndrome.

Single lesions

Constructional Apraxia

The most common causes of damage to a single peripheral nerve (mononeuropathy) are entrapment especially in fibro-osseous tunnels (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome), trauma (e.g. radial nerve palsy), diabetes mellitus (e.g. femoral nerve palsy) or in obesity (e.g. meralgia paraesthetica). Symptoms and signs of some

Tendons

Magic angle effect is not uncommon in the wrist tendons, most frequently observed in the flexor pollicis longus tendon as it courses in the distal aspect of the carpal tunnel and in the palm 26 . Magic angle phenomenon has also been reported in the extensor pollicis longus and extensor carpi ulnaris tendons 27 . The absence of additional pathologic features and the presence of high signal on short TE images without signal alteration on other pulse sequences are highly suggestive of magic angle effect.

Nerves

Accessory Flexor Digitorum Superficialis

The median nerve and ulnar nerve are best seen on axial MR images both display intermediate signal on T1-weighted images and mild increased signal on fluid-sensitive images. The median nerve is round to oval proximal to the carpal tunnel and flat within the tunnel. The division of the nerve into its branches is usually identified at the level of the metacarpals. Numerous anatomic variants have been found at both the carpal tunnel (41 ) and Guyon's canal (21 ) 25,34 . Median nerve variations include alterations in the course of the thenar branch, accessory branches proximal to or at the distal carpal tunnel, bifid median nerve, and high division of the distal median nerve (Fig. 6) 35 . Furthermore, the motor branch may arise in the forearm or may be split by a persistent median artery or an aberrant muscle 35 . Many anomalous muscles have also been described in the carpal tunnel region, such as the reversed palmaris longus muscle, the accessory palmaris profundus, the accessory flexor...

Hamate

Fractures of the hook occur at the base, often as a result of racquet sports or golf. Presentation is with local tenderness and the injury is best visualized on a carpal tunnel radiograph. When diagnosed acutely, treatment in a cast for 6 weeks is appropriate. Left untreated, non-union is common, which may cause chronic pain, ulnar nerve symptoms, or flexor tendon attrition. Treatment is by excision, or ORIF and bone grafting.
