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...

BACKGROUND: During cubital tunnel surgery, the medial antebrachial cutaneous nerve (MACN) may be injured, causing painful scars, neuromas, hypaesthesia or hyperalgesia. As the literature on the anatomy of crossing branches in this area is contradictory, this study aimed to re-examine the anatomy of the MACN in this region. METHODS: Forty upper limbs were dissected. We looked specifically from 5 cm proximal to 6 cm distal to the medial epicondyle (ME) and documented the number of crossing branches and the distances between the crossing points and the ME; we also measured the length of each limb...

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...

Determining the etiology of ulnar-sided wrist pain is often challenging. The condition may be acute or chronic, and differential diagnoses include injuries to the ulnar carpal bones, ligament tears, tendinitis, vascular conditions, osteoarthritis and systemic arthritis, and ulnar nerve compression. An anatomically based, methodical physical examination coupled with provocative maneuvers, including piano key, ulnar impaction, shuck, foveal stress, and extensor carpi ulnaris synergy tests, further defines the differential diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Elbow reconstruction with vascularized composite allotransplantation (VCA) may hold promise in treating end-stage arthritis as no current treatment is both functional and durable. We describe the vascular and gross anatomy of the elbow in the context of VCA procurement and propose a step-by-step surgical technique for human elbow VCA. METHODS: We injected latex in the arterial tree of 16 fresh adult cadaveric upper extremities. We identified and measured arteries and nerves and their branch points relative to the medial epicondyle...

The purpose of this study was to determine in a cadaver model, whether transfer of the posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) to the superficial branch of the ulnar nerve (SBUN) by a single approach was feasible. The experiment was carried out on five fresh cadavers. The ulnar nerve was split into its motor branches and the SBUN. The PIN was collected behind the interosseous membrane and sutured to the SBUN on its anterior surface. All sutures were tensionless and technically possible with the PIN's diameter being at least 50% of the SBUN's diameter in all cases...

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...
