BACKGROUND The exact cause of decreased forearm median motor conduction velocity (FMMCV) in carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is still a subject of controversy. A conduction block or an axonal loss in the large myelinating fibers upon wrist compression, or retrograde axonal atrophy, is suspected. METHODS In order to attempt a determination of the cause, 10… CONTINUE READING
