Compression of the ULNAR NERVE in the cubital tunnel, which is formed by the two heads of the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle, humeral-ulnar aponeurosis, and medial ligaments of the elbow. This condition may follow trauma or occur in association with processes which produce nerve enlargement or narrowing of the canal. Manifestations include elbow pain and PARESTHESIA radiating distally, weakness of ulnar innervated intrinsic hand muscles, and loss of sensation over the hypothenar region, fifth finger, and ulnar aspect of the ring finger. (Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p43)
A major nerve of the upper extremity. In humans, the fibers of the ulnar nerve originate in the lower cervical and upper thoracic spinal cord (usually C7 to T1), travel via the medial cord of the brachial plexus, and supply sensory and motor innervation to parts of the hand and forearm.
Entrapment of the MEDIAN NERVE in the carpal tunnel, which is formed by the flexor retinaculum and the CARPAL BONES. This syndrome may be associated with repetitive occupational trauma (CUMULATIVE TRAUMA DISORDERS); wrist injuries; AMYLOID NEUROPATHIES; rheumatoid arthritis (see ARTHRITIS, RHEUMATOID); ACROMEGALY; PREGNANCY; and other conditions. Symptoms include burning pain and paresthesias involving the ventral surface of the hand and fingers which may radiate proximally. Impairment of sensation in the distribution of the median nerve and thenar muscle atrophy may occur. (Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p45)

Ulnar neuropathies caused by mechanical compression of the nerve at any location from its origin at the BRACHIAL PLEXUS to its terminations in the hand. Common sites of compression include the retroepicondylar groove, cubital tunnel at the elbow (CUBITAL TUNNEL SYNDROME), and Guyon's canal at the wrist. Clinical features depend on the site of injury, but may include weakness or paralysis of wrist flexion, finger flexion, and ulnar innervated intrinsic hand muscles, and impaired sensation over the ulnar aspect of the hand, fifth finger, and ulnar half of the ring finger. (Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p43)
Entrapment of the distal branches of the posterior TIBIAL NERVE (which divides into the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcanial nerves) in the tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the internal malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles of the foot. Symptoms include ankle pain radiating into the foot which tends to be aggravated by walking. Examination may reveal Tinel's sign (radiating pain following nerve percussion) over the tibial nerve at the ankle, weakness and atrophy of the small foot muscles, or loss of sensation in the foot.

The wrist of the formula 1 driver. (1/23)

OBJECTIVES: During formula 1 driving, repetitive cumulative trauma may provoke nerve disorders such as nerve compression syndrome as well as osteoligament injuries. A study based on interrogatory and clinical examination of 22 drivers was carried out during the 1998 formula 1 World Championship in order to better define the type and frequency of these lesions. METHODS: The questions investigated nervous symptoms, such as paraesthesia and diminishment of sensitivity, and osteoligamentous symptoms, such as pain, specifying the localisation (ulnar side, dorsal aspect of the wrist, snuff box) and the effect of the wrist position on the intensity of the pain. Clinical examination was carried out bilaterally and symmetrically. RESULTS: Fourteen of the 22 drivers reported symptoms. One suffered cramp in his hands at the end of each race and one described a typical forearm effort compartment syndrome. Six drivers had effort "osteoligamentous" symptoms: three scapholunate pain; one medial hypercompression of the wrist; two sequellae of a distal radius fracture. Seven reported nerve disorders: two effort carpal tunnel syndromes; one typical carpal tunnel syndrome; one effort cubital tunnel syndrome; three paraesthesia in all fingers at the end of a race, without any objective signs. CONCLUSIONS: This appears to be the first report of upper extremity disorders in competition drivers. The use of a wrist pad to reduce the effects of vibration may help to prevent trauma to the wrist in formula 1 drivers.  (+info)

Stabilized subcutaneous transposition of the ulnar nerve. (2/23)

We treated 50 patients (average age 47.9 years) with a stabilized subcutaneous transposition of the ulnar nerve. The average follow-up period was 42.4 months. The indication was cubital tunnel syndrome in 19 patients and injuries around the elbow in 31 patients. Postoperatively, satisfactory results were obtained in all the patients, and there was no complication or aggravation of the preoperative symptoms. None of the patients experienced slipping back of the nerve to the cubital tunnel. In the 31 patients with injuries around the elbow, there was only one patient with transient aggravation of parasthaesiae in the ulnar nerve region. Stabilized subcutaneous transposition is a simple and less invasive procedure that can facilitate decompression and prevent slipping back of the nerve. This procedure also can be applied to patients with injuries around the elbow that require ulnar nerve transfer.  (+info)

Incidence of ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow in repetitive work. (3/23)

OBJECTIVES: Despite the high frequency of work-related musculoskeletal disorders, the relation between work conditions and ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow has not been the object of much research. In the present study, the predictive factors for such ulnar nerve entrapment were determined in a 3-year prospective survey of upper-limb work-related musculoskeletal disorders in repetitive work. METHODS: In 1993-1994 and 3 years later, 598 workers whose jobs involved repetitive work underwent an examination by their occupational health physicians and completed a self-administered questionnaire. Predictive factors associated with the onset of ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow were studied with bivariate and multivariate analyses. RESULTS: The annual incidence was estimated at 0.8% per person-year, on the basis of 15 new cases during the 3-year period. Holding a tool in position was the only predictive biomechanical factor [odds ratio (OR) 4.1, 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 1.4-12.0]. Obesity increased the risk of ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow (OR 4.3, 95% CI 1.2-16.2), as did the presence of medial epicondylitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, radial tunnel syndrome, and cervicobrachial neuralgia. The associations with "holding a tool in position" and obesity were unchanged when the presence of other diagnoses was taken into account. CONCLUSIONS: Despite the limitations of the study, the results suggest that the incidence of ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow is associated with one biomechanical risk factor (holding a tool in position, repetitively), overweight, and other upper-limb work-related musculoskeletal disorders, especially medial epicondylitis and other nerve entrapment disorders (cervicobrachial neuralgia and carpal and radial tunnel syndromes).  (+info)

Pathogenesis and electrodiagnosis of cubital tunnel syndrome. (4/23)

BACKGROUND: Cubital tunnel syndrome is a well-recognized clinical condition and is the second most common peripheral compression neuropathy. This study was designed to investigate the causes of cubital tunnel syndrome by surgical means and to assess the clinical value of the neurophysiological diagnosis of cubital tunnel syndrome. METHODS: Twenty-one patients (involving a total of 22 limbs from 16 men and 5 women, aged 22 to 63, with a mean age of 49 years) with clinical symptoms and signs indicating a problem with their ulnar nerve underwent motor conduction velocity examinations at different sites along the ulnar nerve and examinations of sensory conduction velocity in the hand, before undergoing anterior transposition of the ulnar nerve. RESULTS: Electromyographic abnormalities were seen in 21 of 22 limbs [motor nerve conduction velocity (MCV) range (15.9 - 47.5) m/s, mean 32.7 m/s] who underwent motor conduction velocity examinations across the elbow segment of the ulnar nerve. Reduced velocity was observed in 13 of 22 limbs [MCV (15.7 - 59.6) m/s, mean 40.4 m/s] undergoing MCV tests in the forearms. An absent or abnormal sensory nerve action potential following stimulation was detected in the little finger of 14 of 22 limbs. The factors responsible for ulnar compression based on observations made during surgery were as follows: 15 cases involved compression by arcuate ligaments, muscle tendons, or bone hyperplasia; 2 involved fibrous adhesion; 3 involved compression by the venous plexus or a concurrent thick vein; 2 involved compression by cysts. CONCLUSIONS: Factors inducing cubital tunnel syndrome include both common factors that have been reported and rare factors, involving the venous plexus, thick veins, and cysts. Tests of motor conduction velocity at different sites along the ulnar nerve should be helpful in diagnosis cubital tunnel syndrome, especially MCV tests indicating decreased velocity across the elbow segment of the ulnar nerve.  (+info)

Simple neurolysis for failed anterior submuscular transposition of the ulnar nerve at the elbow. (5/23)

From 1996 to 2000, we reoperated nine patients totally dissatisfied after previous surgery for cubital tunnel syndrome. All patients had simple external neurolysis in situ of the transposed ulnar nerve. Only the anterior aspect of the ulnar nerve was dissected and released. Dense scarring around the ulnar nerve was found to be the main cause of recurrence but could not explain the three initial cases of persistent symptoms. All patients were reviewed 2 years after the secondary neurolysis. The patients were asked to describe their remaining symptoms and examination included palpation of the ulnar nerve at the elbow, Tinel's sign, two-point discrimination, and palpation of the scar. Pinch and grip strength were measured. According to the Wilson and Krout classification, there were four good results with complete alleviation of symptoms, four fair results, and one poor result. Simple neurolysis proved to be effective after failed anterior submuscular transposition of the ulnar nerve at the elbow.  (+info)

Surgical treatment for ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow. (6/23)

The outcomes of 81 operations were assessed for the treatment of ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow performed on 55 males (bilateral operations in one) and 25 females during the period from January 1995 to December 2000. Before operation, neurophysiological examination was performed in all patients. Simple ulnar nerve decompression or anterior transposition of the ulnar nerve (subcutaneous or intramuscular) was performed with or without the operating microscope. Nine patients were lost to follow up. The outcome was excellent or good in 63 of 72 cases, no change in eight cases, and poor in one case. The outcomes of procedures performed with the operating microscope tended to be superior.  (+info)

Cubital tunnel syndrome. (7/23)

When appropriately diagnosed, this condition may be treated by both conservative and operative means. In this review, the current thinking on this important and common condition is discussed The recent literature on cubital tunnel syndrome was reviewed, and key papers on upper limb and hand surgery were discussed with colleagues.  (+info)

Risk factors for ulnar nerve compression at the elbow: a case control study. (8/23)

BACKGROUND: Ulnar nerve compression at the elbow is frequently encountered as the second most common compression neuropathy in the arm. As dexterity may be severely affected, the disease entity can seriously interfere with daily life and work. However, epidemiological research considering the risk factors is rarely performed. This study intended to investigate whether potential risk factors based on historical belief contribute to the development of ulnar nerve compression at the elbow. METHOD: A hospital based case control study was performed of patients that underwent surgical treatment for ulnar nerve compression at the elbow at the neurosurgical department from June 2004 until June 2005. Controls were those patients treated for a cervical or lumbar herniated disc. The main outcome measure was the presence of ulnar nerve compression at the elbow proven clinically, and electrodiagnostically. RESULTS: 110 patients with ulnar nerve lesions and 192 controls were identified. Smoking, education level and related working experience were identified as risk factors. Conversely, gender, BMI, alcohol consumption, trauma to the elbow, diabetes mellitus, and hypertension are not risk factors for the development of ulnar nerve compression at the elbow. CONCLUSION: Risk factors are clearly defined. In the past many factors have been described, but mostly in surgical series. This study concludes that gender, previous fracture of the elbow and BMI are not predictive factors for ulnar entrapment neuropathy. However, education and working experience are closely correlated with this entity.  (+info)

The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes of ulnar nerve stability-based surgery via a small incision with those of classic anterior transposition of the ulnar nerve for cubital tunnel syndrome. From March 2008 to December 2013, 107 patients with cubital tunnel syndrome underwent simple decompression or anterior transposition via a small incision, according to an ulnar nerve stability-based decision based on an assessment of intraoperative ulnar nerve stability (group A, n = 51), or anterior transposition via a classic incision (group B, n = 56). Clinical outcome was assessed using grip and pinch strength, two-point discrimination, the mean of the disabilities of arm, shoulder, and hand (DASH) survey, and the modified Bishop scale. At the final follow-up, all outcome measures improved significantly in both groups and there were no significant differences between the two groups. However, there were fewer operation-related complications in group A (one revision surgery) than in group

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome - Symptoms, Causes, Treatment, Exercises, Surgery, Recovery. This is a medical condition that is referred as ulnar nerve entrapment.
Introduction: The cubital tunnel syndrome (CubTS) is the most common ulnar nerve compression neuropathy at the elbow and is a major disability in daily life. The simple decompression (SD) procedure has become more popular as surgical treatment because of its effectiveness and low invasive character. In order to increase the wellbeing of the patients, minimally invasive SD approach and insufficient attention is being directed to the anatomy. Yet it is important to avoid injury to the posterior branch(es) of the medical antibrachial cutaneous nerve (MACN) and the crossing branch of the basilic vein during surgery in order to avoid the postoperative complications. Goal: This study aimed to increase the insights into a minimally invasive SD approach to treat the CubTS. Therefore anatomical guidelines were offered, which included the description of the position of the posterior branch(es) of the MACN and the crossing branch of the basilic vein, as well as the discussion of the required SD incision ...
Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that involves pressure or extending of the ulnar nerve, which can cause numbness or tingling in the ring and little fingers, pain in the lower arm, and/or weakness in the hand. The ulnar nerve runs in a groove on the inner side of the elbow.
The goal of treatment for cubital tunnel syndrome is to diminish the pain and the numb sensation that the compression has produced. Treatment must be directed to prevent muscle loss due to long standing nerve compression. At initial stages, limiting repetitive bending and extending activities with use of an elbow pad may be the only treatment necessary. If loss of hand muscles is noted, or the pain and numbness do not improve with conservative treatment, a surgical option may be recommended by your hand surgeon ...

The cubital tunnel is a space of the dorsal medial elbow which allows passage of the ulnar nerve around the elbow. It is bordered medially by the medial epicondyle of the humerus, laterally by the olecranon process of the ulna and the tendinous arch joining the humeral and ulnar heads of the flexor carpi ulnaris. The roof of the cubital tunnel is elastic and formed by a myofascial trilaminar retinaculum (also known as the epicondyloolecranon ligament or Osborne band). Chronic compression of this nerve is known as cubital tunnel syndrome, a form of repetitive strain injury akin to carpal tunnel syndrome (although the role of repetitive stress in causing carpal tunnel syndrome is controversial).

It could be the way you are sleeping at night. Bending the elbow while sleeping on your side can put a compressive force on the ulnar nerve as it passes through the elbow. Wearing a slip-on elbow support with the pad along the inside of the elbow may help. If your symptoms are better in the morning, this could mean you have a mild nerve compression. Continuing to wear the elbow protection may be all thats needed. If your symptoms are unchanged, then there may be something else going on. If you develop more serious symptoms such as pain, numbness, or weakness, you may be experiencing a condition called cubital tunnel syndrome (CTS). Cubital tunnel syndrome is the name of the condition that affects the ulnar nerve where it crosses the inside edge of the elbow. If its not caused by prolonged elbow flexion while sleeping, it may be caused by an extra slip of muscle that crosses the nerve, a ganglion cyst, or a bone spur. Any of these extra anatomical structures can cause enough pressure to ...

Studying mice with sciatic nerve injury, Woolf and colleagues found that regenerating nerve fibers, or axons, must reach the muscle and form the junction known as a synapse within about 5 weeks. If that window is missed, and the muscle has gone too long without nerve stimulation, the axons cant go the final distance to synapse with acetylcholine receptors on the muscle.. Axons get right next to the site, but sit outside of the site - not on top of the receptor, Woolf says. Theyre right next door; they only need to go 1 to 2 microns further.. Our own window for motor recvery still isnt known, but a review of data from 136 patients with carpal tunnel and 20 with cubital tunnel syndrome found 10 months to be a statistically significant dividing line. On muscle tests, patients with cubital tunnel syndrome had average functional scores of 4 (on a scale of 0 to 5) when decompression surgery was done within 10 months of injury, but just 0.5 when surgery happened later. As the time to surgery ...
Most physicians ask patients to try some conservative treatments before undergoing nerve surgery. However, in cases where CuTS is severe or the injury is extreme, the need for surgery is immediate. Conservative treatment involves wearing a splint that will keep the arm straight during activities like physical therapy, sleeping, using technology and tools, indulging in work habits, and using medication to lower the pain.. However, no matter what, you shouldnt wait too long before you get surgery. Even if your condition isnt severe, theres no telling when it can take a turn for the worse. So be sure to get it treated at once. The worse the condition gets, the less your chances become for complete recovery. If the symptoms of CuTS still remain after conservative treatment for a few months, you should definitely go for nerve surgery.. ...

The exhibit illustrates surgery of the left ulnar and median nerves to treat cubital tunnel syndrome. The ulnar nerve is exposed and released from the cubital tunnel and moved anteriorly, and the median nerve is released from the carpal ligament. Guyons canal is released to decompress the ulnar nerve and complete the surgery.
Ulnar nerve transposition is done to treat cubital tunnel syndrome (CTS), also called ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow. The cubital tunnel is an area on the inside back of the elbow. It is often called the funny bone. A major nerve of the arm, called the ulnar nerve, passes through this tunnel just behind the bump of the inner elbow. Sometimes structures of this tunnel can swell and put pressure on the nerve. The pressure causes CTS, a range of symptoms such as numbness, tingling, or weakness. An ulnar nerve transposition helps relieve the pressure on the nerve by relocating the nerve.. The surgery can help relieve many symptoms. If the nerve has been badly injured, some symptoms may remain. ...

CSA measurements in symptomatic and asymptomatic participants were significantly different (p = 0.001) at the level of the cubital tunnel. Measurements of the contra-lateral elbow overlapped between that of symptomatic and asymptomatic participants ( p = 0.000).. A significant difference in CSA measurements (p= 0.000) was recorded between symptomatic and asymptomatic participants, 50 mm distal to the level of the cubital tunnel.. The study likewise revealed a significant difference, although smaller, between CSA measurements 50 mm proximal to the level of the cubital tunnel with the arm in flexion (p = 0.003).. Confounding factors explored in the study included gender, race, height, age, weight, BMI, handedness, occupation and participation in sport. Owing to the small sample size, correlation coefficients, lying between -1 and +1, were employed to determine the correlation between measurements and confounding factors. With a correlation coefficient ≥0.6 indicating a strong correlation, a ...
Causes of claw hand can also be due to anything that may lead to ulnar nerve palsy. Ulnar nerve palsy can arise from a laceration anywhere along its course. Proximal injuries to the medial cord of the brachial plexus may also present with sensory loss distally. Ulnar nerve palsies can also be due to cubital tunnel syndrome and ulnar tunnel syndrome. These are compression neuropathies at the elbow and wrist. Another cause of ulnar nerve palsy may be due to a failure to splint the hand in an intrinsic-plus posture following a crush injury. There are a few systemic diseases which may also lead to ulnar nerve palsy. These include leprosy, syringomyelia, and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. However, these systemic diseases usually involve more than one nerve.[5][6] ...
Guyons Canal Syndrome is a Cumulative Trauma Disorder, also known as a Repetitive Strain Injury. It affects the ulnar nerve where it passes through the wrist in the tunnel of Guyon, right next to the carpal tunnel. It impacts the nerves of the little finger, half the ring finger and the small muscles in the palm of the hand. It is closely related to Cubital Tunnel Syndrome, which involves the ulnar nerve passage through the elbow.
Nerve decompression of the upper extremities is also called peripheral nerve decompression. The Orthopedic Specialty Clinic in Murray, Salt Lake City, Utah treats upper extremity nerve compression syndromes such as carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel syndrome, posterior interosseous syndrome and radial tunnel syndrome.
A pinched nerve is caused when a nerve is somehow damaged or injured by direct pressure or compression and is unable to properly conduct its signal. There are many potential causes for a pinched nerve, depending on the location of the nerve. A pinched nerve in the neck or lower back can be caused by a herniated disc, arthritis, bone spurs, or spinal stenosis. A pinched nerve in the lower back or buttock can compress the sciatic nerve, which can cause sciatica. A pinched nerve in the wrist can be caused by carpal tunnel syndrome. Cubital tunnel syndrome is a similar condition caused by compression of the ulnar nerve in the elbow. Both of these conditions are more common in people with diabetes and people who perform repetitive activities such as a typist, using a computer keyboard for long periods of time, or assembly line workers. Swelling around a nerve can be caused by an injury, bruise, or other conditions, including the swelling of the extremities that can occur with pregnancy ...
