The purpose of this study was to investigate ultrasound (US)- and US elastography-detected changes in the median nerve of patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Seventy-four wrists of 41 female patients with CTS (mean age, 47.73 ± 11.45 y) and 45 wrists of 24 asymptomatic female controls (mean age, 42.83 ± 10.66 y) were examined with US and US elastography. Electromyography results confirmed the diagnosis of CTS in the patients. The mean median nerve perimeter (MN-P = 15.26 ± 2.18 mm) and… CONTINUE READING
