Relationship between Clinical Signs & Symptoms and Electrophysiological Findings in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Patients

Sahoo J.K, Joshi A.G


Abstract: Background- CTS (Carpal tunnel syndrome) has been reported to be the commonest entrapment neuropathy. Clinical symptoms of CTS and Phalens test & Tinels sign are the two signs used commonly to diagnose clinically CTS. Aim & objective- To co-relate electrophysiological findings with clinical signs & symptoms of CTS. Materials and methods- Sensory and motor nerve conduction study were carried out in 100 CTS patients and 60 controls in department of physiology, KIMS Karad. Subjects were divided into 4 groups. Control group, group I (clinical symptoms along with both test (-) ve, group II (clinical symptoms along with either of the test (+) ve, group III (clinical symptoms along with both the test (+) ve. Sensory nerve conduction velocity (SNCV) of Median nerve, Difference in distal sensory latency ( DSL) of median & ulnar nerve, Difference in distal motor latency (DML) of median & ulnar nerve, DML of Median nerve were compared between four groups. Result- For all the parameters studied Significant differences were observed between control & Three Groups (p
