Etiopathogenic Value of the Associated Pathology in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Etiopathogenic Value of the Associated Pathology in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome AbstractThe present study focused on highlighting the pathology associated with carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a susceptible neuropathy of the upper limb, its appearance being favored by the coexistence of other chronic pathologies.The study group consisted of 163 patients treated in the Plastic Surgery Clinic of the Emergency County Hospital in Constanţa, men and women of adulthood. The only exclusion criteria was non-compliant patients.The results were consistent with other studies published in the literature, with an over three times higher incidence of female sex.The decades of age most prone to the disease were the fourth, fifth, and sixth.Approximately one third of patients experienced bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome.A particularly important presence of the triad was found: hygh blood pressure, obesity and diabetes mellitus, at least one of which was present in over 70% of patients.The etiopathogenicity of the carpal tunnel syndrome is becoming clearer, the “Golden Trio” dominating the clinical picture in most patients. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png ARS Medica Tomitana de Gruyter

Abstract

AbstractThe present study focused on highlighting the pathology associated with carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a susceptible neuropathy of the upper limb, its appearance being favored by the coexistence of other chronic pathologies.The study group consisted of 163 patients treated in the Plastic Surgery Clinic of the Emergency County Hospital in Constanţa, men and women of adulthood. The only exclusion criteria was non-compliant patients.The results were consistent with other studies published in the literature, with an over three times higher incidence of female sex.The decades of age most prone to the disease were the fourth, fifth, and sixth.Approximately one third of patients experienced bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome.A particularly important presence of the triad was found: hygh blood pressure, obesity and diabetes mellitus, at least one of which was present in over 70% of patients.The etiopathogenicity of the carpal tunnel syndrome is becoming clearer, the “Golden Trio” dominating the clinical picture in most patients.
