Present studies evaluated the functions of thick and thin nerve fibers in carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) to determine whether data of thin nerve fibers can add further information to the diagnosis of CTS. Measurements were performed in 22 patients and 16 age-matched control subjects. Motor and sensory nerve conduction, vibratory testing, thresholds of warmth and cold sensations, suprathreshold magnitude of pain and flare response, as well as sympathetic reflexes induced by noxious… CONTINUE READING
