The following pages cover issues which are often raised by patients and which are complex enough to justify a page of their own. Some of them are prompted by discussions which have arisen in the patients forums here.
At present the topics covered are:
Secondary CTS - when CTS is caused by another disease
Double Crush Syndrome - the theory that compression of a nerve in the neck, or elsewhere, can predispose to CTS
Pregnancy - CTS is very common in late pregnancy and there are special considerations in treating it during pregnancy
Breast Cancer - There are several issues relating to breast cancer and it's treatment which have a bearing on CTS
Trigger digit, Dupuytren's contracture and CTS - three conditions which often occur together
Suggestions for further additons to these 'special interest' pages are welcome.
