전방골간신경 증후군 - 수술적 치료 3례에 대한 관찰 -
The anterior interosseous nerve syndrome of nontraumatic origin is an uncommon neurologic condition manifested by weakness or paralysis of the flexor pollicis longus,the flexor digitorum profundus of the index ,and the pronator quadratus. Since the first report by Kiloh and Nevin in 1952, many cases of anterior interosseous nerve syndrome have been reported suggesting various causes and treatment protocols. The purpose of this report is to consider the cause and treatement about this syndrome upon the findings of three patients who were treated surgically and to review the literatures. Through the findings after the neurolysis, there was no clear evidence of external compression. One patient began to show signs of recovery at one month and the other patient at four months; one patient did not show recovery at thirty-two months from the time of surgery. We could not confirm the pathologic findings suggesting compression neuropathy through the three surgical cases, and the etiology and treatment is still inconclusive.
