Summary

The aim of this study, using two different injection techniques,

  1. To evaluate the patients in terms of the pain they feel during the application of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) injection,
  2. Evaluation in terms of undesirable effects developing after injection,
  3. To evaluate the degree of pain/drowsiness, symptom severity and functionality, and median nerve diameter at the end of the first month after the injection, and to evaluate the relationship of these parameters with the pain felt by the patients during the injection.

Description

Among the evaluated patients, the patients who met the inclusion and exclusion criteria and accepted the carpal tunnel syndrome injection will be randomized into 2 groups using the random numbers table.

One group will be injected using the out-of-plane technique under ultrasound, and the other group will be injected using the in-plane technique. Patients will be evaluated before the treatment, at the 1st hour after the injection and at the end of the 4th week after the injection.

Randomization and injection of the patients will be done by Dr Gül Tuğba Bulut, while the evaluation of the patients and the sonographic evaluation of the median nerve will be done by Dr Alper Mengi.

Age, gender, education level, body mass index, duration of symptoms, dominant hand, injection hand, and carpal tunnel syndrome severity detected in EMG of the patients included in the study will be recorded.

The patients will be questioned about the pain they feel during the injection at the end of the 1st hour after the injection, while the degree of pain/numbness in the wrist and finger, symptom severity and functionality, and median nerve diameter are evaluated at the end of the 4th week before and after the injection.

Patients will be questioned about undesirable effects at the end of the 4th week after the injection.
