Mechanical compression of nerves or nerve roots from internal or external causes. These may result in a conduction block to nerve impulses (due to MYELIN SHEATH dysfunction) or axonal loss. The nerve and nerve sheath injuries may be caused by ISCHEMIA; INFLAMMATION; or a direct mechanical effect.
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.

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)
Disease involving the common PERONEAL NERVE or its branches, the deep and superficial peroneal nerves. Lesions of the deep peroneal nerve are associated with PARALYSIS of dorsiflexion of the ankle and toes and loss of sensation from the web space between the first and second toe. Lesions of the superficial peroneal nerve result in weakness or paralysis of the peroneal muscles (which evert the foot) and loss of sensation over the dorsal and lateral surface of the leg. Traumatic injury to the common peroneal nerve near the head of the FIBULA is a relatively common cause of this condition. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p31)

Multiple point electrical stimulation of ulnar and median nerves. (1/473)

A computer-assisted method of isolating single motor units (MUs) by multiple point stimulation (MPS) of peripheral nerves is described. MPS was used to isolate 10-30 single MUs from thenar and hypothenar muscles of normal subjects and patients with entrapment neuropathies, with the original purpose of obtaining a more representative mean motor unit potential for estimating the number of MUs in a muscle. The two important results that evolved from MPS however, were: (1) in the absence of 'alternation' MUs were recruited in an orderly pattern from small to large, and from longer to shorter latencies by graded electrical stimulation in both normal and pathological cases, (2) a comparison of the sizes of MUs recruited by stimulation proximal and distal to the elbow suggested that axonal branching can occur in the forearm 200 mm or more proximal to the motor point in intrinsic hand muscles.  (+info)

Cyclic compression of the intracranial optic nerve: patterns of visual failure and recovery. (2/473)

A patient with a cystic craniopharyngioma below the right optic nerve had several recurrences requiring surgery. Finally the cyst was connected with a subcutaneous reservoir by means of a fine catheter. Symptoms of optic nerve compression recurred more than 50 times during the following year, and were relieved within seconds upon drainage of the reservoir. In each cycle, a drop in visual acuity preceded a measurable change in the visual field. The pattern of field changes was an increasingly severe, uniform depression. Optic nerve ischaemia induced by compression was probably the most important factor causing visual failure in this case.  (+info)

Common peroneal nerve palsy: a clinical and electrophysiological review. (3/473)

In a series of 70 patients (75 cases of common peroneal nerve palsy) the common causes were trauma about the knee or about the hip, compression, and underlying neuropathy. A few palsies occurred spontaneously for no apparent reason. The prognosis was uniformly good in the compression group; recovery was delayed but usually satisfactory in patients who had suffered stretch injuries. In the acute stage, when clinical paralysis appears to be complete, electrophysiological studies are a useful guide to prognosis. They may also indicate an underlying neuropathy and they detect early evidence of recovery. The anatomical peculiarities of the common peroneal nerve are noted and aspects of the clinical picture, management, and prognosis of palsy are discussed.  (+info)

Lumbar spinal subdural hematoma following craniotomy--case report. (4/473)

A 52-year-old female complained of lumbago and weakness in the lower extremities 6 days after craniotomy for clipping an aneurysm. Neurological examination revealed symptoms consistent with lumbosacral cauda equina compression. The symptoms affecting the lower extremities spontaneously disappeared within 3 days. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging 10 days after the operation demonstrated a lumbar spinal subdural hematoma (SSH). She had no risk factor for bleeding at this site, the symptoms appeared after she began to walk, and MR imaging suggested the SSH was subacute. Therefore, the SSH was probably due to downward movement of blood from the cranial subdural space under the influence of gravity. SSH as a complication of cranial surgery is rare, but should be considered if a patient develops symptoms consistent with a lumbar SSH after craniotomy.  (+info)

Removal of petrous apex meningioma and microvascular decompression for trigeminal neuralgia through the anterior petrosal approach. Case report. (5/473)

A 64-year-old female presented with right trigeminal neuralgia. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging demonstrated a tumor attached to the right petrous apex. MR imaging also revealed that the trigeminal nerve was compressed and distorted by the tumor. Tumor removal and microvascular decompression (MVD) were performed via the anterior petrosal approach. The trigeminal nerve was distorted by the tumor and the superior cerebellar artery compressed the medial part of the root entry zone of the trigeminal nerve. The surgery resulted in complete relief of the trigeminal neuralgia. Posterior fossa tumors causing ipsilateral trigeminal neuralgia are not rare, and are often removed via the suboccipital retromastoid approach, as MVD for trigeminal neuralgia is usually performed through the retromastoid approach. The advantages of the anterior petrosal approach are shorter access to the lesion and direct exposure without interference from the cranial nerves, and that bleeding from the tumors is easily controlled as the feeding arteries can be managed in the early stage of the surgery. We conclude that the anterior petrosal approach is safe and advantageous for the removal of petrous apex tumor associated with trigeminal neuralgia.  (+info)

The wrist of the formula 1 driver. (6/473)

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)

Predictors of outcome in cauda equina syndrome. (7/473)

This retrospective review examined the cause, level of pathology, onset of symptoms, time taken to treatment, and outcome of 19 patients with cauda equina syndrome (CES). The minimum time to follow up was 22 months. Logistical regression analysis was used to determine how these factors influenced the eventual outcome. Out of 19 patients, 14 had satisfactory recovery at 2 years post-decompression; 5 patients were left with some residual dysfunction. The mean time to decompression in the group with a satisfactory outcome was 14 h (range 6-24 h) whilst that of the group with the poor outcome was 30 h (range 20-72 h). There was a clear correlation between delayed decompression and a poor outcome (P = 0.023). Saddle hypoaesthesia was evident in all patients. In addition complete perineal anaesthesia was evident in 7/19 patients, 5 of whom developed a poor outcome. Bladder dysfunction was observed in 19/19 patients, with 12/19 regarded as having significant impairment. Of the five patients identified as having a poor overall outcome, all five presented with a significant sphincter disturbance and 4/5 were left with residual sphincter dysfunction. There was a clear correlation between the presence of complete perineal anaesthesia and significant sphincter dysfunction as both univariate and multivariate predictors of a poor overall outcome. The association between a slower onset of CES and a more favourable outcome did not reach statistical significance (P = 0.052). No correlation could be found between initial motor function loss, bilateral sciatica, level or cause of injury as predictors of a poor outcome (P>0.05). CES can be diagnosed early by judicious physical examination, with particular attention to perineal sensation and a history of urinary dysfunction. The most important factors identified in this series as predictors of a favourable outcome in CES were early diagnosis and early decompression.  (+info)

Sonographic detection of radial nerve entrapment within a humerus fracture. (8/473)

Radial neuropathy is frequently associated with fracture of the middle third of the humerus owing to the course of the nerve adjacent to the humeral shaft. The prevalence varies from 2 to 18% of humeral fractures. The therapeutic management is still controversial. Some authors recommend initial surgical exploration, whereas others prefer observation and intervention only if the injured nerve failed to recover after a period of more than 4 months. According to the literature, verification of an entrapped radial nerve in a fracture gap requires surgical exploration, but diagnostic tools to verify the existence of a pathologic condition are limited. We describe the sonographic findings of an entrapped radial nerve and review the literature regarding diagnosis and treatment of entrapped radial nerve in cases of humeral fracture.  (+info)

Posterior Interosseous Nerve (PIN) Syndrome is a pathology that involves pain and/or motor weakness as a result of nerve compression. In parts of the medical community, Radial Tunnel Syndrome and PIN Syndrome are one in the same, while in other parts they are different diagnoses with the same nerve involvement (Posterior Interosseous Nerve). These health care professionals identify Radial Tunnel Syndrome as pain along the radial tunnel, while PIN Syndrome is marked weakness in the muscles innervated by the Posterior Interosseous Nerve. Due to the fact that both syndromes involve compression of the same nerve, often by the same structures, we will use the terms PIN Syndrome and Radial Tunnel Syndrome synonymously in this review, especially due to the fact that the two are managed identically.

An inflatable miniature cuff was used to apply local compression of 80 mm Hg or 30 mm Hg to a segment of rat sciatic nerve for time periods varying from two to eight hours. The endoneurial fluid pressure was measured by direct micropipette measurement techniques at one or 24 hours after removal of the cuff, and the nerves were subjected to histological analysis. Endoneurial oedema, associated with a four-fold increase in endoneurial fluid pressure, was observed after compression at 80 mm Hg for four hours, and a three-fold increase was found after compression at 30 or 80 mm Hg for eight hours. Such an increase in endoneurial fluid pressure may interfere with intrafascicular capillary flow, and thereby constitute an important pathophysiological mechanism in nerve compression injuries.. ...

Palmitoylethanolamide, a neutraceutical, in nerve compression syndromes: efficacy and safety in sciatic pain and carpal tunnel syndrome Jan M Keppel Hesselink, David J KopskyInstitute for Neuropathic Pain, Bosch en Duin, the Netherlands Abstract: Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is an endogenous lipid modulator in animals and humans, and has been evaluated since the 1970s as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic drug in more than 30 clinical trials, in a total of ~6,000 patients. PEA is currently available worldwide as a nutraceutical in different formulations, with and without excipients. Here we describe the results of all clinical trials evaluating PEAâ s efficacy and safety in nerve compression syndromes: sciatic pain and pain due to carpal tunnel syndrome, and review preclinical evidence in nerve impingement models. Both the pharmacological studies as well as the clinical trials supported PEAâ s action as an analgesic compound. In total, eight clinical trials have been published in such entrapment

If we examine the physics of nerve compression in detail, it becomes apparent that there may exist a misconception. Compression means to become pressed into a smaller space. In nerve compression syndromes, it is absolutely clear that a site of reduction in size of the nerve is apparent. This is found at surgery and on radiological investigations such as MRI and ultrasound. But since nerves are full of water (which is not substantially compressible) how is it possible that a nerve could become smaller when compressed ...

Nerve Compression Nerves form the central nervous system and are involved in conducting messages from the brain to other parts of the body. They are of two types - motor, which help in movement and sensory, which lets us sense pressure, temperature and pain. Many nerve fibers are grouped together to form a bundle and are protected by an insulating cover. Messages in the form of electric pulses pass through nerves, to and from the brain, through cells called neurons. Neurons are made up of 3 parts: a cell body, a long tube-like axon which transmits signals to the next nerve cells and dendrites that receive signals from other neurons.. Nerve Compression. Nerves may get compressed or pinched when pressure is exerted as a result of repetitive movement or holding the body in one position for a long time. Compression usually occurs between bones, ligaments and tendons present in various sites of the body. Nerves get inflamed when pressure is applied and do not function properly. If the pressure is ...

Meralgia Paresthetica is a nerve disorder that causes pain and numbness on the surface of the frontal/outer part of the upper thigh.
Thigh pain, or numbness in the thigh, can be life altering for many. Any time there is numbness, it can be a sign of possible nerve damage and should be taken seriously. Once a nerve becomes permanently damaged, it is irreversible and normal function is gone forever.. Numbness in the thigh is a condition called Meralgia Paresthetica. Meralgia Paresthetica can be a painful condition for those who suffer from it for a prolonged period of time. Most people can bear pain or numbness for a short time period but when a condition becomes chronic, it can become quite bothersome.. Last week, a consultation came in and told me of his meralgia paresthetica and how much pain he had been in. He also described the numbness in his upper leg and thigh.

The muscles in the forearm works properly, if the posterior interosseous nerve remains healthy. Quality of life will be affected if the nerve gets damaged.
Minimally-Invasive Back Surgery for Nerve Compression on Neck and back pain is often linked to nerves that are compressed because of a lack of sufficient space. This typically happens when herniated discs, slipped vertebra (spondylolisthesis), bone spurs, or abnormalities like lumbar (lower back) or cervical (neck-related) spinal stenosis crowd nerve roots. One less invasive way to create more room for spinal nerves is with a procedure known as a microlaminectomy.
Anterior cutaneous nerve entrapment syndrome (ACNES) is a nerve entrapment condition that causes chronic pain of the abdominal wall. It occurs when nerve endings of the lower thoracic intercostal nerves (7-12) are entrapped in abdominal muscles, causing a severe localized nerve (neuropathic) pain that is usually experienced at the front of the abdomen. ACNES syndrome is frequently overlooked and unrecognized, although the incidence is estimated to be 1:2000 patients. The relative unfamiliarity with this condition often leads to significant diagnostic delays and misdiagnoses, often resulting in unnecessary diagnostic interventions and futile procedures. Physicians often misdiagnose ACNES as irritable bowel syndrome or functional disorders, as symptoms of the condition are not dispositive. Affected individuals typically experience limited relief from standard pain relieving medication, with the exception of some neuroleptic agents. Patients frequently experience pseudovisceral phenomena or ...

Nerve entrapment lesions - - Different nerve entrapments of the lower limb exist: sciatic, pudendal, superior and inferior gluteal, obturator, femoral, lateral femoral cutaneous, ilioinguinal, iliohypogastric and genitofemoral nerves. A comprehensive history, clinical examination and special investigations are necessary to make the correct diagnosis. Conservative treatment Rest Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs Muscle relaxants Neuroleptics Physiotherapy Guided nerve blocks or steroid injections. Conservative treatment usually improves symptoms. If the symptoms are disabling or not responding to conservative treatment surgery may be considered.

Your doctor should conduct a complete evaluation of your pituitary gland before starting treatment with Parlodel.. The safety of Parlodel treatment during pregnancy to mother and fetus has not been established.. If you become pregnant while taking Parlodel, tell your doctor immediately. Your doctor should monitor you closely during pregnancy if you are taking Parlodel. Adenomas on the pituitary may expand and compress the optic nerve, which may require emergency pituitary surgery. In most cases, optic nerve compression resolves after delivery. Reinitiating Parlodel may improve vision if you have suffered from nerve compression during pregnancy.. Parlodel may cause extreme sleepiness, and episodes of sudden sleep onset, particularly if you have Parkinsons disease. You should not drive or operate heavy machinery while taking Parlodel. If you experience extreme sleepiness or sudden sleep onset, your doctor may reduce your Parlodel dose or discontinue your Parlodel therapy.. Low blood pressure may ...

Results: A total of 262 patients with MP, 262 normal controls, and 262 BMI-matched normal controls with mean age of 50 years were identified (51% men). The age- and sex-adjusted incidence of MP was 32.6 per 100,000 patient years, whereas the incidence of MP in people with DM was 247 per 100,000 patient years, 7 times the occurrence of MP in the general population. Of the patients with MP, 28% had DM vs 17% of BMI-matched controls and the majority of people with MP developed DM after the diagnosis of MP. Patients with MP are 2 times more likely to develop DM (odds ratio 2, 95% confidence interval 1.3-3.0, p = 0.0027). The mean BMI of patients with MP (30.1 kg/m2, obese class I) was significantly higher than that of age- and gender-matched controls (27.3 kg/m2, overweight). MP incidence increased 12.9 per 100,000 patient years in the hemidecade study period with an associated increase in both BMI (2.2 kg/m2) and average age (3 years).. ...

Peripheral nerve entrapment is predisposed many times by metabolic disorders. We know that when a nerve has a metabolic disorder such as diabetic peripheral neuropathy, it causes that nerve to function differently. It causes it to swell. It has a higher water content. It becomes heavier. It has a larger cross-sectional diameter. So where these nerves end up going through tunnels, they become entrapped. When they become entrapped in the tunnels,that causes a focal demyelination of the nerve, which then leads to nerve damage. By removing that source of focal entrapment, the nerve has the ability to regenerate itself and so patients are able to get restored sensation. Their pain reduction can be significant. Some studies show nearly 90 percent reduction in pain, and around 70 percent improvement in sensation.. Additionally, were finding that there are improvements in balance when patients can feel their feet on the floor. They have better proprioception. Their brains know where they are in space, ...
