OBJECTIVE To correlate morphological findings of idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) with the function of the median nerve. METHODS In this study, 105 wrists of 105 women patients with idiopathic CTS, and 36 wrists of 36 female volunteers were subjected to nerve conduction studies and MRI. Cross sectional area, signal intensity ratio, and the flattening ratio of the median nerve, carpal tunnel area, flexor tendon area, synovial area, and intersynovial space, and the palmar bowing of the… CONTINUE READING
