Anterior submuscular transposition of the ulnar nerve

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15446526

Outcome studies of revision surgical treatment for recurrent or persistent neuropathy of the ulnar nerve at the elbow are relatively rare and none involves patient self-assessment. In this study of 40 patients (41 elbows), a clear discrepancy is shown between clinical assessment and the patient's own view. From clinical assessment,...

Cell Phone Elbow

Location: http://www.ccjm.org/content/76/5/306.long

With prolonged cellular telephone use, people may note the onset of aching, burning, numbness, or tingling in the ulnar forearm and hand. This constellation of symptoms, termed “cell phone elbow” by the lay press, is known medically as cubital tunnel syndrome
Q:What is cell phone elbow, and what should we tell...

Complete anaesthesia in the cutaneous distribution of the ulnar nerve following submuscular anterior transposition

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19093911

Complete anaesthesia in the cutaneous distribution of the ulnar nerve following submuscular anterior transposition of the ulnar nerve has not been previously reported. We postulate vascular insult as the etiology of this condition and suggest there may be clinical importance to preserving the ulnar nerve blood supply during submuscular anterior...

Cubital tunnel reconstruction for ulnar neuropathy in osteoarthritic elbows

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/79-B/3/390

We operated on 16 patients for ulnar neuropathy associated with osteoarthritis of the elbow. They were all male manual workers, with an average age of 51 years at the time of surgery. The severity of the symptoms was McGowan grade 1 in five patients, grade 2 in nine and grade...

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome eMedicine Orthopedics

Location: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1231663-overview

Feindel and Stratford (1958) were the first to use the term cubital tunnel. They emphasized that the ulnar nerve is compressed at the elbow because of anatomic peculiarities to that region. In 1898, Curtis performed the first published case of management for ulnar nerve neuropathy at the elbow, which consisted...

Synonym: ulnar neuritis
The ulnar nerve arises from the medial brachial plexus and innervates the muscles of both the forearm and parts of the hand. It also carries sensory neurones supplying the skin of the back of the forearm, the palm and the fourth and little fingers. Most damage to the...

Early surgical management for heterotopic ossification about the elbow presenting as limited range of motion associated with ulnar neuropathy

Location: http://memo.cgu.edu.tw/cgmj/2504/250404.pdf

CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that early surgical management combined with gentle physical therapy postoperatively is a feasible modality for treating patients with post-traumatic HO about the elbow presenting as limited range of motion and associated ulnar nerve compression syndrome.
Early surgical management for heterotopic ossification about the elbow presenting as limited...

Medial epicondylectomy or ulnar-nerve transposition for ulnar neuropathy at the elbow

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/78-B/5/777

We carried out a prospective randomised study comparing medial epicondylectomy with anterior transposition for the treatment of ulnar neuropathy at the elbow. The mean follow-up period was 4.5 years and we assessed the patients neurologically and orthopaedically. Neither procedure appeared to have a significant effect on elbow function. Our study...

Surgical treatment for ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow

Location: http://www.jstage.jst.go.jp/article/nmc/45/5/45_240/_article

The outcomes of 81 operations were assessed for the treatment of ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow performed on 55 males (bilateral operations in one) and 25 females
Simple ulnar nerve decompression or anterior transposition of the ulnar nerve (subcutaneous or intramuscular) was performed with or without the operating microscope. Nine...

Systemic scleroderma associated with bilateral ulnar nerve entrapment

Location: http://rheumatology.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/39/6/682

Peripheral nervous system involvement in systemic sclerosis (SSc) is rare, and is usually limited to carpal tunnel syndrome. Ulnar nerve involvement secondary to compression of Guyon's canal has been reported in two patients. Herein, we describe for the first time an SSc patient who developed bilateral ulnar nerve sensorimotor compression...

The pathology of the ulnar nerve in acromegaly

Location: http://eje-online.org/cgi/content/full/159/4/369

We examined prospectively 37 acromegalic patients with no history of polyneuropathy, acute trauma at the elbow, no diabetes or hypothyroidism with clinical examination, nerve conduction studies (NCS), and high-resolution ultrasound (US).
In 8 of 37 patients, a diagnosis of UCT was made at the beginning of the study reflecting a...

The Relationship Between the Ulnar Nerve and the Cubital Tunnel with Elbow Motion Medscape

Location: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/431838

Neural traction may be an important cause of cubital tunnel syndrome, according to researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. To study the etiology of cubital tunnel syndrome (compression of the ulnar nerve at the elbow), 23 upper extremity cadaveric specimens were studied using a combination...

Ulnar Mononeuropathy in Diabetes Mellitus Medscape

Location: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/508017

Diabetic mononeuropathies may be non-compressive (cranial nerve lesions, thoraco-abdominal radiculopathy) or compressive giving rise to nerve entrapment syndromes.[1] Compression mononeuropathies are related to mechanical disruption of the myelin sheaths at sites of external compression. Carpal tunnel syndrome affecting the median nerve is the most common but ulnar and lateral popliteal...
