BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to determine the material properties of the normal carpal tunnel subsynovial connective tissue in response to shear stress. METHODS The shear modulus and maximum shear strength were measured with a custom-made micro-tester in 10 specimens of subsynovial connective tissue from 10 wrists in eight patients with idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome and in 10 specimens from five fresh frozen cadavers without a history of carpal tunnel syndrome. FINDINGS The… CONTINUE READING
