Summaries for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

MedlinePlus : 44 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, also known as carpal tunnel syndrome, familial, is related to peripheral nervous system disease and epicondylitis, and has symptoms including seizures, tremor and back pain. An important gene associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is TTR (Transthyretin), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Cytokine Signaling in Immune system and Human cytomegalovirus infection. The drugs Prednisolone phosphate and Lidocaine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include testes, bone and thyroid, and related phenotypes are peripheral neuropathy and constrictive median neuropathy

Genetics Home Reference : 26 Carpal tunnel syndrome is a disorder caused by disturbances in nerve function (neuropathy), leading to pain and numbness or tingling (paresthesia) primarily in the wrist and hand. While carpal tunnel syndrome can occur at any age, it most often affects people between the ages of 40 and 60. In more than half of cases, both hands are affected; however, the severity may vary between hands. When only one hand is affected, it is most often the hand used for writing (the dominant hand).

CDC : 3 The goal of ergonomics (i.e. the scientific study of people at work) is to prevent soft tissue injuries and musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) caused by sudden or sustained exposure to force, vibration, repetitive motion, and awkward posture. To create an ergonomically sound work environment, NIOSH ergonomists and industrial hygienists recommend designing tasks, work spaces, controls, displays, tools, lighting, and equipment to fit employee’s physical capabilities and limitations. On this page you will find the Musculoskeletal Health Program’s ergonomic recommendations and musculoskeletal health-related research.

NINDS : 55 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. Sometimes 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 : 76 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.

PubMed Health : 64 About carpal tunnel syndrome: Most people's hands briefly "fall asleep" every now and then. They then feel numb or tingly. Although this is a little unpleasant, it's usually over very quickly. Carpal tunnel syndrome has similar symptoms – but they keep coming back again and are often painful.The carpal tunnel is a passageway inside of the wrist that is surrounded by bones and connective tissue. It runs along the inner side of the wrist to the base of the hand and is covered by a strong, fibrous band made up of connective tissue, called the flexor retinaculum. The carpal tunnel contains tendons and the median nerve. This nerve is responsible for sensation and movement in the ball of the thumb and some parts of the hand. If the tissue inside the carpal tunnel swells up, it can put pressure on the median nerve, which is what causes carpal tunnel syndrome. The symptoms often go away on their own, but they can sometimes last for quite a long time. There are a number of different treatments that can provide relief.

Drugs & Therapeutics for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

PubMedHealth treatment related to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: 64

Mild to moderate carpal tunnel syndrome can usually be treated with a splint at first. The splint is worn at night to prevent the wrist from bending too far. Doctors may also advise you to avoid activities thought to be related to this condition.Injecting corticosteroids into the carpal tunnel can provide temporary relief, but corticosteroid injections aren't an effective long-term solution.Surgery may also be considered as a treatment. During the operation, the flexor retinaculum that arches across the base of the hand is cut: to reduce pressure on the median nerve. This procedure can make the symptoms go away for good, but it's not always necessary. Other treatments are usually preferred, especially in early stages of the condition. Immediate surgery is only needed in very rare cases of acute carpal tunnel syndrome.Other treatments such as acupuncture, ultrasound therapy, laser therapy or magnetic field therapy may also be recommended. But there is no evidence that they are effective in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome.Many people take painkillers to relieve their symptoms – particularly non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which are available over-the-counter at pharmacies and drugstores. Taking vitamin B6 products is sometimes also recommended to strengthen the nerves. So far, though, research suggests that neither NSAIDs nor vitamin B6 can provide enough pain relief.
