Disease relevance of Ulnar Neuropathies


High impact information on Ulnar Neuropathies

  • Although this hypothesis has been accepted, it has anatomic and pathophysiologic restrictions that limit its application as an explanation for coexisting cervical root lesions (CRLs) and carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) or ulnar neuropathy at the elbow (UN-E) [6].
  • Peri- or postoperative ulnar neuropathy [7]?
  • These data, together with our recent observation of a dystonic pattern of antagonist bursting in patients with isolated ulnar neuropathy (Muscle Nerve 1995, 18:606-611), suggest that ulnar neuropathy may initiate or sustain a specific dystonia, flexion of the fourth and fifth digits, by inducing a central disorder of motor control [8].
  • Splinting and local steroid injection for the treatment of ulnar neuropathy at the elbow: clinical and electrophysiological evaluation [9].
  • Minocycline-associated lupus-like syndrome with ulnar neuropathy and antiphospholipid antibody [10].
