Summaries for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Familial

MedlinePlus : 41 you're working at your desk, trying to ignore the tingling or numbness you've had for some time in your hand and wrist. suddenly, a sharp, piercing pain shoots through the wrist and up your arm. just a passing cramp? it could be carpal tunnel syndrome. the carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway of ligament and bones at the base of your hand. it contains nerve and tendons. sometimes, thickening from irritated tendons or other swelling narrows the tunnel and causes the nerve to be compressed. symptoms usually start gradually. as they worsen, grasping objects can become difficult. often, the cause is having a smaller carpal tunnel than other people do. other causes include performing assembly line work, wrist injury, or swelling due to certain diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis. women are three times more likely to have carpal tunnel syndrome than men. early diagnosis and treatment are important to prevent permanent nerve damage. your doctor diagnoses carpal tunnel syndrome with a physical exam and special nerve tests. treatment includes resting your hand, splints, pain and anti-inflammatory medicines, and sometimes surgery. nih: national institute of neurological disorders and stroke

MalaCards based summary : Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Familial, also known as carpal tunnel syndrome, is related to mononeuropathy of the median nerve, mild and acromegaly, and has symptoms including peripheral neuropathy, constrictive median neuropathy and vitamin b6 deficiency. An important gene associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Familial is TTR (Transthyretin). The drugs Methylprednisolone and Prednisolone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include bone, testes and thyroid.

CDC : 3 Ergonomics includes the scientific study of people at work. The goal of ergonomics is to reduce stress and eliminate injuries and disorders associated with the overuse of soft tissues e.g., muscles or tendons, awkward posture, and repeated tasks. This is accomplished by designing tasks, work spaces, controls, displays, tools, lighting, and equipment to fit the employee´s physical capabilities and limitations.

NINDS : 51 Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) occurs when  the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the palm of the hand,  becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. The carpal tunnel is a narrow, rigid passageway of ligament and bones at the base of the hand that houses the median nerve and the tendons that bend the fingers. The median nerve provides feeling to the palm side of the thumb and to most of the fingers. Symptoms usually start gradually, with numbness, tingling, weakness, and sometimes pain in the hand and wrist.  CTS makes it difficult for some people to drive, read a book, grasp small objects, or do other tasks. Sometines no direct cause of CTS can be found; contributing factors include trauma or injury to the wrist that causes swelling, as well as thyroid disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and fluid retention during pregnancy. Women are three times more likely than men to develop carpal tunnel syndrome. The disorder usually occurs only in adults.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 66 Carpal tunnel syndrome 1: A condition characterized by entrapment of the median nerve within the carpal tunnel. Symptoms include burning pain and paresthesias involving the ventral surface of the hand and fingers which may radiate proximally. Impairment of sensation in the distribution of the median nerve and thenar muscle atrophy may occur. This condition may be associated with repetitive occupational trauma, wrist injuries, amyloid neuropathies, rheumatoid arthritis.
