  • IntroductionThenar muscle atrophy is a common finding in long-standing severe carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS. [...] Key Method Outcome was assessed by clinical grade of thenar muscle atrophy, degree of thumb opposition and the patient’s satisfaction.ResultsThe average grade of thenar muscle atrophy improved from grade 3 pre-operatively to grade 0.83 at the last follow-up. Mean maximal palmar abduction improved from 3.6 to 6.8 cm, and spatial rotation improved from 54° to 83°.Expand Abstract
