In the carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), decreased conduction velocity (CV) of the median nerve in the forearm segment has been ascribed to an electrodiagnostic artefact rather than pathophysiological changes. Standard CV of the forearm segment is calculated by subtracting the distal latency, which may not represent an exact assessment of CV in the proximal median nerve. A new technique modified from the method of Stoehr et al. and Pease et al. can exactly measure CV over the forearm. Using this… CONTINUE READING
