STUDY DESIGN: Basic research (biomechanics). INTRODUCTION: The high degree of motion that occurs at the thumb metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint must be taken into account when immobilizing a partially torn or repaired thumb ulnar collateral ligament. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: To determine the efficacy of a radial-based thumb MCP-stabilizing orthosis in resisting abduction across the thumb ulnar collateral ligament. METHODS: Ten fresh cadaveric hands were mounted to a custom board...

STUDY DESIGN: Diagnostic accuracy. INTRODUCTION: Upper limb neurodynamic test 1 (ULNT1) is used to evaluate the mechanical sensitivity especially in the peripheral nerves of the upper limbs. The reproduction of typical symptoms in the affected hand improves the estimation of the probability of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). However the test has not been evaluated sufficiently to determine its real usefulness. In the present study the diagnostic accuracy of ULNT1 as a clinical test for CTS was determined...
