Surgical treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome in patients with peripheral neuropathy.
Outcome after carpal tunnel surgery was studied retrospectively in 32 patients with peripheral neuropathy and carpal tunnel syndrome. Nocturnal paresthesias were almost universally relieved, followed in order of responsiveness by pain, numbness, and weakness. Twenty-five of 28 patients said they would have the surgery again if the outcome were the same. Patients with carpal tunnel syndrome and peripheral neuropathy benefit from surgical treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome.
