Abstract

Diagnostic ultrasound in the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome is firmly established. Preoperative evaluation is based on quantitative parameters such as measurement of the pathologically enlarged cross-sectional area of the nerve. The value of postoperative ultrasound lies in the visualization of the anatomy and the conclusions that can be drawn from it. It focuses on the semiquantitative sonographic parameters of nerve compression. Nerve lesions and persistent strictures can be visualized and clearly localized. In recurrent disease, the primary focus is to dynamically exclude postoperative scarring, which results in a reduction of nerve gliding. CI - Copyright (c) 2022 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
