BACKGROUND: Cubital tunnel syndrome (CUT) is the second most common peripheral neuropathy with an annual incidence of 24.7 per 100 000, affecting nearly twice as many men as women. With increasing focus on cost-effectiveness and cost-containment in medicine, a critical understanding of utilization of health care resources for open and endoscopic approaches for cubital tunnel release is of value. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the costs and utilization trends of open and endoscopic cubital tunnel release...

In addition to the more common carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel syndromes, orthopaedic surgeons must recognize and manage other potential sites of peripheral nerve compression. The distal ulnar nerve may become compressed as it travels through the wrist, which is known as ulnar tunnel or Guyon canal syndrome. The posterior interosseous nerve may become entrapped in the proximal forearm as it travels through the radial tunnel, which results in a pain syndrome without motor weakness. The median nerve may become entrapped in the proximal forearm, which can result in a variety of symptoms...

Cubital tunnel syndrome is the most common cause of symptomatic ulnar neuropathy. The unique anatomic course of the ulnar nerve around the elbow makes it particularly vulnerable at a location far from its terminal destination. The natural progression of cubital tunnel syndrome allows patients who have mild symptoms to be adequately treated nonsurgically. Minor changes in activity combined with appropriate splinting may acceptably alleviate symptoms. Surgical intervention is recommended for patients who have more severe symptoms...

Cubital tunnel syndrome (CuTS) is the second most common peripheral nerve compression disease, however, the pathogenesis and pathology of CuTS remain to be fully elucidated. The aim of the present study was to compare the expression pattern of microRNAs (miRNAs) in pachyntic Osborne's ligament with that in control tendinous tissue, and select meaningful miRNAs for further investigation of the clinical pathological mechanism underlying CuTS. A microarray assay was performed to examine the expression profiles of miRNAs in the Osborne's ligament and control tendinous tissues...

REVIEW
Kyle R Eberlin, Youssra Marjoua, Jesse B Jupiter
The untoward effects resulting from compression of the ulnar nerve have been recognized for almost 2 centuries. Initial treatment of cubital tunnel syndrome focused on complete transection of the nerve at the level of the elbow, resulting in initial alleviation of pain but significant functional morbidity. A number of subsequent techniques have been described including in situ decompression, subcutaneous transposition, submuscular transposition, and most recently, endoscopic release. This manuscript focuses on the historical aspects of each of these treatments and our current understanding of their efficacy...

Objective: In this study, we propose a modification to the simple decompression technique that contains the ulnar nerve in the cubital fossa, thus preventing subluxation during forearm flexion movements. Methods: Five consecutive patients with leprosy-associated cubital tunnel syndrome underwent surgery with the modified technique between July 2011 and October 2012. Results: The most common symptoms were neuropathic pain and sensory changes (both 60%)...

BACKGROUND: Sometimes during surgery for cubital syndrome an anomalous muscle called the epitrochleoanconeus is encountered. Different surgical strategies how to decompress the ulnar nerve in the presence of this muscle have been proposed, including transection of the muscle, resection, or subcutaneous transposition of the ulnar nerve. Because of the low incidence, there is no consensus on what type of surgical treatment can best be performed. In this study, we prospectively followed a small series of patients, in which the muscle was resected...

BACKGROUND: Cubital tunnel syndrome caused by ganglion cysts is rare and reports are few. This study aimed to review a patient cohort with ganglion cysts in the cubital tunnel and identify prognostic factors. METHODS: Fifty-seven patients (59 extremities; McGowan grade I, 4; IIa, 4; IIb, 3; III, 48) were evaluated retrospectively with a minimum follow-up of 2 years. Extraneural cysts were excised completely, while intraneural cysts were incised and drained. All cases underwent subcutaneous transposition...

BACKGROUND: Compressive neuropathy of the ulnar nerve at the elbow, or cubital tunnel syndrome (CuTS), is the second most common entrapment neuropathy of the upper extremity after carpal tunnel syndrome. While several studies have reported risk factors and outcomes for select populations (mostly surgical), it is difficult to interpret these data without an accurate measure of CuTS disease burden in the general population. OBJECTIVE: To estimate the incidence of CuTS among US health plan enrollees, using a large administrative health care claims database comprised of individuals from all 50 states...

Gout is a chronic rheumatic disease resulting from accumulation of monosodium urate crystals in tissues. The most important risk factor for the disease is hyperuricaemia. Precipitation of uric acid in the joint in the form of monosodium urate crystals is the main factor responsible for triggering attacks of arthritis. Tophi occur as a result of urate crystals that precipitate into joints and surrounding tissues. Tophi can erode the bone where they are located and cause compression in soft tissue due to a mass effect...

Nerve entrapment syndromes in the upper extremities are common clinical disease patterns, less often as direct results of accidents. The most frequent compression syndrome is the carpal tunnel syndrome followed by the cubital tunnel syndrome. If the cause of the compression cannot be eliminated by conservative treatment options, an operative therapy is necessary. As the prognosis becomes worse with the duration of the nerve compression, it is important to initiate therapy at an early stage.
