INTRODUCTION Though ultrasonography (US) is commonly used in the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), there are only few studies on the utility of US in ulnar neuropathy at the elbow (UNE). The aims of this study were to measure the cross-sectional area (CSA) of the ulnar nerve at the elbow and to correlate CSA values with clinical and electrophysiological findings. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty-three UNE patients (mean age 50.1 years) were consecutively enrolled. Diagnosis was based on… CONTINUE READING
