BACKGROUND To explore whether risk factors for neurophysiologically confirmed carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) differ from those for sensory symptoms with normal median nerve conduction, and to test the validity and practical utility of a proposed definition for impaired median nerve conduction, we carried out a case-control study of patients referred for investigation of suspected CTS. METHODS We compared 475 patients with neurophysiological abnormality (NP+ve) according to the definition, 409… CONTINUE READING
