NCT01994434

  Purpose

Ulnar nerve compression is common at the elbow, but less common at the wrist. The purposes of this study are to report a series of 9 patients with pure ulnar nerve deep branch compression by a ganglion and to evaluate the outcome following a surgical treatment. According modified Bishop's scoring system, the investigators would evaluate postoperative results of this uncommon nerve lesion.


Condition Intervention
Guyon's Canal
Nerve Compression
Procedure: Decompression of the ulnar nerve

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Further study details as provided by The Second Hospital of Tangshan:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Grip strength [ Time Frame: 18-24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Grip strength is measured using the E-LINK system.

  • Tip pinch strength [ Time Frame: 18-24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Tip pinch strength between the thumb and index finger is measured using the E-LINK system.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Modified Bishop's scoring system [ Time Frame: 18-24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    According Bishop's scoring system, we redesign a questionnaire for comprehensive assessment of this uncommon nerve lesion.


Enrollment: 9
Study Start Date: March 2000
Study Completion Date: November 2012
Primary Completion Date: October 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Decompression of the ulnar nerve
Surgical decompression of the Guyon's canal and ganglion excision
Procedure: Decompression of the ulnar nerve
Surgical decompression of the Guyon's canal and ganglion excision

Detailed Description:

Pre- and post-operative physical examination include assessment of tenderness and strength (grip and pinch). Grip strength and tip pinch strength between the thumb and index finger are measured using the E-LINK system. According Bishop's scoring system, the investigators redesign a questionnaire for comprehensive assessment of this uncommon nerve lesion.
