Abstract

This article discusses the epidemiology and clinical presentation of carpal tunnel syndrome and the electrodiagnostic approach to evaluating patients with possible carpal tunnel syndrome. The selection of the best sensory testing protocol and use of motor conduction studies and needle electromyography are discussed. Interpretation requires care, particularly in light of the risks of false-positive testing results and possible technical errors.
