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

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

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

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

Influence of Pronator Teres Release on Treatment of Median Nerve Compression Neuropathy

The investigators are comparing two standard of care procedures which can be performed at the same time, or sequentially. The hypothesis being tested is whether simultaneous release of both the carpal Tunnel and the Pronator Teres results in a better outcome in terms of symptom relief and recurrence than Carpal ...


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) ...

Phase N/A

Studying Finger-thumb Grip in Patients With Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

RESEARCH QUESTIONS This study will ask important questions about CTS that builds on previous research in the field. The research questions are: How is precision pinch grip force affected by CTS throughout the activity of picking up and replacing an object, for a range of CTS severities, especially in more ...

Phase N/A

Early Motion Following Carpal Tunnel Release

The surgical procedure, carpal tunnel release, will be performed in a standard open fashion. In a random fashion, the patients will be placed into either of two rehabilitation groups following CTR with specifically different postoperative instructions after the procedure.

Phase N/A

Patient Outcomes With Endoscopic Versus Open Carpal Tunnel Release

Although some surgeons prefer one technique rather than the other, both endoscopic and open carpal tunnel release procedures are accepted as standard of care surgeries to relieve carpal tunnel syndrome. The investigator's research is designed to evaluate the significant difference in patient satisfaction between endoscopically-released wrists and open-released wrists. The ...


Treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome With Dynamic Splinting

This study will compare the efficacy of treating Carpal tunnel Syndrome with the Dynasplint® Systems device as compared to a non-treatment control group utilizing a randomized, controlled, cross-over study design. The dependant variables in this study are each patient's score on a Levine-Katz disability and pain scale test, and the ...
