Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

(Ulnarneuropathie)

There is a compression or tension of the ulnar nerve at the elbow.

The ulnar nerve is often at the elbow and rarely irritated the wrist area. The cubital tunnel syndrome, which is much less common than carpal tunnel syndrome is most commonly caused by the rebellion on the elbow or longer extreme flexion of the elbow. It is less common than carpal tunnel syndrome. The pitching in baseball (v. A. Slider), which can hurt the medial ligaments of the elbow, involves a significant risk for it.

E. On the ulnar side of the hand incl. IV. And V. finger) and elbow pain. In the advanced stage, weakness of the intrinsic hand muscles and the flexor muscles of the ring and little finger can develop. The weakness grasping between thumb and little finger and the grip strength of the hand are disturbed. Patients with chronic cubital tunnel syndrome present themselves (the extension of the metacarpophalangeal joint and flexion of the interphalangeal joint of the little finger and the ring finger causes Imbalanz between intrinsic and extrinsic muscles of the hand) with an ulnar claw hand. Diagnosis Clinical evaluation Sometimes measuring the nerve, the diagnosis is often made clinically. However, when the clinical diagnosis is ambiguous, and if surgery is contemplated, the nerve should be measured. The cubital tunnel syndrome can ulnaris by the narrowing of the nerve at the wrist in the ulnar by the presence of sensory deficits at the back of the hand and the ulnar additional sensory deficits are delimited proximal to the wrist in testing the muscles or measurement of the nerve conduction velocity. Therapy for the treatment include a night splint with the elbow in 45 ° -Streckung and use an elbow pad during the day. Upon failure of conservative measures, surgical intervention is necessary.
