METHODS This was a prospective and descriptive study. The CTS was clinically and electrodiagnostically defined in each patient. The conduction of ulnar and medial antebrachial cutaneous nerves (MABCN) was bilaterally studied to evaluate the function of lower brachial plexus. One hundred women with 176… CONTINUE READING
