ULNAR NERVE COMPRESSION [5 records]

Record 1 2002-07-02

English

Subject field(s)
  • Nervous System
CONT

Compression neuropathy :-damage to a peripheral nerve by pressure-can occur anywhere along its course, although certain sites more vulnerable-source of pressure may be external : such as ulnar neuropathy from leaning on the elbow, or a peroneal palsy from pressure from a cast or brace-compression may be from source inside body :nerve may be angulated by adjacent tissues within the body such as a bony callus, synovial thickening, ganglia, tumors, fibrous bands, or normal or aberrant muscle.-compression may be acute, continuous or intermittent-recovery from compression neuropathy can be partial or complete depending on the degree of injury, type of injury and systemic factors.-treatment should be focussed on relieving the compression on the nerve.

Les mononeuropathies et mononeuropathies multiples : Les membres inférieurs sont le plus souvent intéressés (cruralgies). Les membres supérieurs sont moins souvent touchés. Il s'agit alors souvent d'une neuropathie compressive, telle une compression du médian dans le canal carpien.

Subject field(s)
  • Nervous System
CONT

Entrapment and compressive neuropathies. The peripheral nerves are vulnerable to chronic compression or entrapment in a variety of sites. The most frequently encountered are median nerve compression at the wrist within the carpal tunnel(carpal tunnel syndrome) ;median nerve compression in the upper forearm; ulnar nerve compression in the hand(cubital tunnel syndrome), wrist, or at the elbow(tardy ulnar nerve palsy) ;tibial nerve compression behind the medial malleolus(tarsal tunnel syndrome) ;and peroneal nerve compression over the lateral fibular head.

Compression of the ulnar nerve at the wrist can be caused by a multitude of intrinsic and extrinsic factors... Magnetic resonance imaging can be a useful method in diagnosing the cause and location of ulnar nerve compression.

CONT

Les syndromes de compression nerveuse [...] se traduisent par des troubles de la sensibilité, avec paresthésies (fourmillements) au niveau des doigts. La compression du nerf médian au niveau du canal carpien peut se voir chez le pianiste, le violoniste et les joueurs d'instruments à vents, celles du nerf cubital au coude, du plexus brachial et des vaisseaux à la base du cou chez le violoniste.
