Motor conduction velocity (CV) measurements often show conduction velocity slowing in the forearm segment of the median nerve in carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). This is thought to be caused by either retrograde demyelination in the forearm or conduction block of the fastest fibers within the carpal tunnel. Direct measurement of the forearm segment of the median nerve should distinguish these two possibilities. Standard motor conduction studies and mixed nerve action potential (MNAP) recordings… CONTINUE READING
