AAEE minimonograph #26: The electrodiagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Abstract

The electrodiagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome is reviewed, including discussions of old and new techniques of motor and sensory nerve conduction, anomalous innervation, needle electrode examination, and one method of examining a patient with suspected carpal tunnel syndrome. The results of electromyographic testing of 505 patients with carpal tunnel syndrome in Rochester, Minnesota, from 1961 to 1980 are compared with results from previous studies. In the appendixes, a method of performing median motor and sensory nerve conduction studies and Mayo Clinic normal values are provided.
