Diabetic patients operated for carpal tunnel syndrome
Non-diabetic patients operated for carpal tunnel syndrome
- Patient self-reported outcome questionnaire [ Time Frame: 5 years after carpal tunnel release ]Measured by 1). Boston Carpal Tunnel Questionnaire regarding carpal tunnel symptoms and disability. 2). Medical Outcomes Study 36-Item Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36) registering health-related quality of life. 3). Cold intolerance on a CISS score
- Nerve conduction study and vibrotactile sense [ Time Frame: 5 years after carpal tunnels release ]
Change in Median nerve function by measuring Distal motor latency and antidromic sensory conduction velocity over the carpal tunnel segment.
Evaluate development of peripheral neuropathy by measure of sural nerve sensory conduction velocity, sural nerve amplitude and peroneal nerve motor conduction velocity.
Vibrotactile sense of the hand measured at 7 difference frequences from 5 - 500 Hz.
