The utility of the Scratch Collapse Test (SCT) has been demonstrated in examination of patients with carpal and cubital tunnel syndromes and long thoracic and peroneal nerve compressions. In our clinic, this lesser known test plays a key role in peripheral nerve examination where localization of the nerve irritation or injury is not fully understood. Test utility and accuracy in patients with more challenging presentations likely correlates with tester understanding and experience. This paper offers a clear outline of all stages of the test in order to improve inter-rater reliability...

Background There is no consensus on the most effective surgical technique in the treatment of cubital tunnel syndrome. Anterior subcutaneous transposition (AST) and anterior intramuscular transposition (AIT) are common surgical treatments in this regard. The aim of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes of these two surgeries for cubital tunnel syndrome. Methods In a retrospective study, we compared surgical outcomes (pain, sensation, motor recovery, atrophy, and total satisfaction) in 40 patients undergoing AIT and 43 undergoing AST of the ulnar nerve...

We reported a rare case of cubital tunnel syndrome caused by heterotopic ossification after burns. The ulnar nerve was encircled by bony tunnel structure which cause nerve compression, resulting in ulnar nerve lesion. Our case sheds light on possible etiological association which may help clinical management.

Cubital tunnel syndrome is the second most common upper extremity compressive neuropathy. In recent years, rates of surgical treatment have increased, and the popularity of in situ decompression has grown. Nonsurgical treatment, aiming to decrease both compression and traction on the ulnar nerve about the elbow, is successful in most patients with mild nerve dysfunction. Recent randomized controlled trials assessing rates of symptom resolution and ultimate success have failed to identify a preferred surgical procedure...

STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional design. INTRODUCTION: This study examined the translated English to Polish version of the Patient-Rated Ulnar Nerve Evaluation (PRUNE) for its internal consistency, test-retest reliability, and construct validity. METHODS: During the first assessment validity testing, a total of 39 consecutive patients with cubital tunnel syndrome completed the PRUNE, Michigan Hand Outcome Questionnaire, Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand questionnaire, and Patient Evaluation Measure in conjunction with the grip and key pinch tests and pain score (by Visual Analogue Scale)...

In situ ulnar nerve release has been gaining popularity as a simple, effective, and low-morbidity procedure for the treatment of cubital tunnel syndrome. One concern with the technique is how to manage the unstable ulnar nerve after release. It is unclear how much nerve subluxation will lead to problems and surprisingly there is no grading system to assess ulnar nerve instability. I propose such a grading system, as well as a new technique to stabilize the unstable ulnar nerve. The blocking flap technique consists of raising a rectangular flap off the flexor/pronator fascia and attaching it to the posterior subcutaneous flap so that it blocks the nerve from subluxation/dislocation...

The two main surgical options for patients with persistent or recurrent cubital tunnel syndrome are subcutaneous and submuscular transposition. We retrospectively analysed the results of 34 patients with recalcitrant cubital tunnel syndrome who underwent submuscular transposition with musculofascial lengthening at our institutions. Of the 34 patients, 21 improved clinically after submuscular transposition with musculofascial lengthening, of which 16 were still satisfied at a mean follow-up of four years. In addition, all articles published between 1974 and January 2015 on subcutaneous and/or submuscular transposition of the ulnar nerve for recalcitrant cubital tunnel syndrome were reviewed...

PURPOSE: Gradual onset diseases (eg, carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, and trapeziometacarpal arthrosis) tend to go unnoticed for years. When a slowly progressive disease transitions from asymptomatic to symptomatic, it may seem like an acute event. The primary aim of this study was to determine the percentage of patients who perceive the slowly progressive disease as having started within 1 year. We also hypothesized that (1) there would be no factors associated with perception of an onset of disease within 1 year, more specifically among patients with advanced disease; and (2) there would be no difference in a decision to pursue operative treatment between patients who perceived the onset of the disease to be recent and those who perceived it to be long-standing...

The aim of this study was to review the literature of decompression of the cubital tunnel with medial epicondylectomy and to assess outcomes and complications. Twenty-one case series reported on 886 medial epicondylectomies. The mean percentage of patients obtaining improvement of one or more McGowan grade was 79%. The mean percentage obtaining a good/excellent Wilson Krout grade of outcome was 83%. Of six comparative studies, two showed no significant differences in outcomes between medial epicondylectomy and transposition procedures, and three reported better outcomes with medial epicondylectomy...

This prospective observational study assessed the prevalence of cold sensitivity in patients with nerve compression using the Cold Intolerance Symptom Severity (CISS) questionnaire. One hundred patients (72 women, 28 men; mean age 59 years) with carpal tunnel syndrome ( n = 95) or cubital tunnel syndrome ( n = 5) were studied. Fifty-two patients reported symptoms of cold sensitivity with a mean CISS score of 50. Overall, significantly more women (58% vs. 36%) reported cold sensitivity with significantly worse CISS scores than men...

PURPOSE: Carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel syndrome are the 2 most common upper-limb compressive neuropathies. However, whether the characteristics of patient populations undergoing surgery for these conditions are similar is unclear in terms of demographics and concomitant pathologies. Our null hypothesis was that there are no identifiable differences between these patient populations. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was performed by billing system query using Common Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes for all patients who underwent open carpal tunnel release (CTR) (CPT code 64721) and/or open cubital tunnel surgery (CPT code 64718) by 1 of 4 hand surgeons from August 2008 to July 2013...

Cubital tunnel syndrome is the second most common nerve compression syndrome in peripheral nerve compression disease. Although potential ulnar nerve entrapment can occur at multiple points along its course, such as the arcade of struthers, the medial intermuscular septum, the medial epicondyle, the cubital tunnel, and the deep flexor pronator aponeurosis, the most common site of entrapment is the cubital tunnel. However, cubital tunnel syndrome could also be caused by the occupying masses along the course of ulnar nerve, such as intraneural or extraneural ganglia...

Cubital tunnel syndrome is the second most common nerve compression syndrome observed in the upper extremity. Mechanical irritation of the ulnar nerve is also found in the upper and the lower arm even though cubital tunnel syndrome is documented most of the time. Apart from clinical examination electrophysiological testing is the most important contributor to the therapy decision. Depending on the clinical manifestation conservative treatment with elbow splinting may be appropriate. In the event of persistent or advanced nerve irritation surgical decompression may be the sensible intervention...

Numerous interventions for neuropathic pain (NeuP) are available, but its treatment remains unsatisfactory. We systematically summarized evidence from systematic reviews (SRs) of randomized controlled trials on interventions for NeuP. Five electronic databases were searched up to March 2015. Study quality was analyzed using A Measurement Tool to Assess Systematic Reviews. The most common interventions in 97 included SRs were pharmacologic (59%) and surgical (15%). The majority of analyzed SRs were of medium quality...
