Abstract/OtherAbstract:
PERSPECTIVE: We explored the involvement of median nerve small and large fibers in carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). We found a significant correlation between Aδ-fiber function and CTS symptoms. Small-fiber involvement took place in milder disease stages. These findings could help reconcile the discrepancy between CTS symptoms and electrodiagnostic data.
