Evaluation of the function status of the ulnar nerve in carpal tunnel syndrome

J. Zhang, Liu, N., Wang, Y. W., Zhang, Z. C., Zheng, L. N., and Zhu, J., Evaluation of the function status of the ulnar nerve in carpal tunnel syndrome, vol. 14, pp. 3680-3686, 2015.

Many carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) patients have symptoms in both the median and ulnar digits more frequently than in the median digits alone. This is possibly because of close anatomical contiguity of the carpal tunnel and Guyon’s canal, and the high pressure may also affect the latter, causing indirect compression of ulnar nerve fibers. Thus, we evaluated the functional status of the ulnar nerve in patients with CTS in order to investigate the relationship between ulnar nerve impairment and sensory symptoms of the ulnar territory.
