Background and Objectives: A nerve conduction study (NCS) has been known as a useful method to evaluate thetherapeutic effect of operation in carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). To evaluate the temporal relationship between symptomaticand electrophysiological improvement, we compared the preoperative symptoms and electrophysiological resultswith postoperative those.
Methods: We analyzed the NCS changes before and after minimal release of carpal tunnel in 26 patients (34 hands)with CTS. The time of postoperative symptomatic changes, postoperative electrophysiological changes and temporalrelationship between symptomatic and electrophysiological changes were evaluated.
Results: The mean age was 49
Key words: carpal tunnel syndrome, nerve conduction study, temporal relationship
