The two most frequently diagnosed nerve compression syndromes of the upper extremities are carpal tunnel syndrome and cubital tunnel syndrome. In order to determine the relative frequencies of nerve conduction abnormalities at the carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel in France and the United States, we evaluated all patients (nFR = 882 and nUS = 818) who had nerve conduction studies of the upper extremities over a six-yearFR or three-yearUS interval. In both France and the United States, the risk… CONTINUE READING
