OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation (TENS) by using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). DESIGN Randomized controlled trial. SETTINGS University medical center and an outpatient imaging center. PARTICIPANTS Female patients with CTS (n=20) were randomized(More)
Carpal tunnel syndrome, although rare, is known to occur in children mainly because of genetic or metabolic disorders. The clinical findings are variable and include symptoms of burning pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness or atrophy in the hands of the patients.

hand. There was no evidence of denervation. Thereafter, in order to visualize the median nerves, we have performed US evaluations. Median nerves cross sectional areas at the entrance of the carpal tunnel were 22.5 mm 2 on the right side and 26.1 mm 2 on the left side. Accordingly, the diagnosis of bilateral CTS was confirmed 2.
