About

to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of single ultrasound guided Platelet Rich Plasma injection of the carpal tunnel Vs. surgical procedures and medical treatment and hand support in patients with mild-moderate carpal tunnel syndrome regarding pain relief and function improvement during a follow up period of 6 months.

Full description

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) accounts for approximately 90% of peripheral entrapment neuropathy cases. Existing evidence based treatments for carpal tunnel syndrome, splinting, corticosteroid injection and surgery, are not 100% effective and alternative treatments are worth exploring .Surgery indicated in Patients with persistent numbness and pain, motor dysfunction with diminished grip or pinch grasping, or thenar eminence flattening. Empirical evidence indicates that many patients with CTS have self-limiting symptoms and respond to splinting and anti-inflammatory medications. Recently major attention has been drawn to platelet-rich plasma for its possible effects on axon regeneration and neurological recovery.
