Different Sutures in Hand Surgery

This study aims to assess the relationship between overall satisfaction with treatment in a group of randomized patients undergoing elective hand surgery using either absorbable (4-0 Chromic) or non-absorbable (5-0 Nylon) sutures. The investigators will also assess factors associated with wound concerns, pain intensity, magnitude of limitations, and physical function ...

Phase N/A

Effectiveness of Ultrasound Guided Corticoanesthetic Injection in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common nerve entrapment neuropathy. Six placebo-controlled trials with 393 participants proved corticosteroid injection to be effective in symptom relief. However, all injections were palpation-guided. Therefore, the exact injection site was uncertain. Although three studies comparing palpation and ultrasound (US) guided CTS injection showed ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Local Only Anesthesia Versus Sedation in Patients Undergoing Bilateral Carpal Tunnel Release

The study design is a prospective randomized control trial. Four surgeons will enroll up to 30 patients in the study. Patients will be asked to participate if they plan to undergo bilateral carpal tunnel release with one of the study surgeons, are greater than 18 years of age but younger ...

Phase N/A

Local Effects of Acupuncture and Nerve Conduction Studies

The purpose of this study is to measure the local effects of acupuncture on the median and ulnar nerves in patients with median neuropathy at the wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome), using nerve conduction studies (NCS) and quantitative sensory testing (QST) as outcomes. Our secondary aim is to compare acupuncture's effect ...

Phase N/A

DUCATS Trial: Dynamic Ultrasound to Enhance Understanding of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

We hypothesize that the ultrasound detectable variations in nerve, tendon and SSCT mobility in patients with CTS may be useful clinically, not to diagnose CTS, but instead as functional biomarkers that correlate with, and thereby serve as predictors for, treatment response. To test this hypothesis, we propose a longitudinal clinical ...

Phase N/A

Hydrodissection as a Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

This is a pilot study designed to acquire data on the added value of hydrodissection when using a corticosteroid injection as a treatment for patients with carpal tunnel syndrome. Hydrodissection is part of a standard clinical care injection under ultrasound guidance in which the fluid is used to separate the ...

Phase N/A

Ultrasound-guided Peripheral Nerve Block Versus Forearm Bier's Block in Patients Undergoing Carpal Tunnel Release

Introduction In Belgium, several ways of anesthesia are used to perform hand surgery, being general anesthesia, intravenous regional anesthesia as well as locoregional anesthesia. Locoregional anesthesia and intravenous regional anesthesia are often performed since patients can be discharged from the hospital more rapidly. A forearm intravenous regional anesthesia (IVRA; mini-Bier's ...

Post-Operative Splinting After Short-Incision Carpal Tunnel Release: a Prospective Study

Your participation in this study will last for five office visits of approximately 30 minutes each. If you decide to participate in this study, we would first have you come to clinic where you would undergo some standard measurements. This includes measuring grip and key pinch strength and completing a ...

Phase N/A

Platelet Rich Plasma for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

After obtaining written informed consent, patients of clinically diagnosed with bilateral CTS were randomized into intervention and control side. Intervention group received one-dose ultrasound-guided PRP injection and control group received one-dose ultrasound-guided normal saline injection. No additional treatment after injection through the study period. The primary outcome is visual analog ...

Phase N/A

Sonographic Evaluation of Patients With Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Following Steroid Injection

Patients with CTS were recruited. The Boston Questionnaire (BQ) was administered and ultrasonographic and electrophysiological examinations were performed before and at two, six, and 12 weeks after steroid injection. Cross sectional area (CSA) was measured at 2 levels: at the tunnel inlet and in the mid-carpal tunnel. Flattening ratio (FR) ...
