Entrapment neuropathies of the upper extremity
Entrapment neuropathies are mononeuropathies caused by long term or recurrent compression of peripheral nerves as they pass through anatomically narrow areas. The diagnosis of entrapment neuropathies are based on a combination of anamnesis, physical examination and EMG findings. In this article, pathophysiology of entrapment neuropathies and some of the most common entrapment neuropathies seen in upper extremity will be discussed.
