Carpal tunnel syndrome: Ergonomic Risk Factors and Intracarpal
It is known that intracarpal pressure generally changes with wrist flexion and extension (7).
19) reported that the use of the extension maneuver resulted in significantly higher intracarpal canal hydrostatic pressure as compared to the flexion maneuver.
Serial overnight recordings of intracarpal
canal pressure in carpal tunnel syndrome patients with and without wrist splinting.
Diagnostic value of unspecific requested and implemented MRI for detecting intracarpal
lesions, compared to arthroscopic findings at 217 patients.
soft-tissue lesions associated with an intra-articular fracture of the distal end of the radius.
Previous studies demonstrated an increase in intracarpal
tunnel pressure (9, l0) and an increase in tension forces in the finger flexor tendons (11) when force is exerted.
