수근 터널 증후군의 수술적 치료후 부목고정이 악력회복에 미치는 영향
Carpal tunnel syndrome is most common peripheral nerve compression neuropathy. Carpal tunnel release is the accepted surgical treatment after failed conservative management of this condition. A little attention has been given to postoperative management methods and their effect on surgical outcomes. To compare with the surgical outcomes such as subjective symptomes and grip strength in postoperative splint immobilization after open carpal tunnel release, we perfomed a retrospective. randomized study in cases of a bulky dressing only without postoperative wrist splinting, Twenty four patients with 35 carpal tunnel releases were evaluated. There were no statistically significant differences between the two groups using parameters of patients satisfaction and grip strength with their outcome. We found no beneficial effect from postoperative splinting after open carpal tunnel release when compared to a bulky dressing alone.
