PMID:  7670899     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We evaluated 44 patients with carpal tunnel syndrome and performed histological evaluations of tenosynovium taken at the time of carpal tunnel release. Age, disease and work history, radiographs, and outcome were assessed. The clinical parameters were then compared with the histologic features to determine if the histology was predictive of the clinical course of carpal tunnel syndrome. We found no significance in the histologic changes in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome when age, duration of symptoms, work history, radiographs, and outcome were evaluated.
