Abstract

An association between symptomatic compression neuropathy of the median nerve at the carpal tunnel and "trigger finger" has been reported in endocrine and metabolic disorders. We assessed the incidence of increased median nerve latency in subjects with "trigger finger". 62 consecutive patients with "trigger finger" and no signs or symptoms of median nerve compression underwent nerve conduction studies of the median nerve. 13 healthy adults served as controls. 39/62 patients had increased distal motor latency in the median nerve. Only 1 of 13 subjects in the control group had a borderline value of distal motor latency.
