OBJECTIVE Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is an entrapment neuropathy which is caused by the disruption of blood supply in the median nerve under transverse carpal ligament. Systemic factors facilitate the formation of the syndrome. In this study, neovascularization in the subsynovial tissue and proliferative activity in the stroma are analyzed within the cases of diabetic and idiopathic CTS. MATERIALS AND METHODS Subsynovial connective tissue samples of 30 diabetes mellitus patients with CTS… CONTINUE READING
