CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME IN PREGNANCY.

Massey, E. Wayne
Obstetrical & Gynecological Survey: March 1978
review: PDF Only

The signs and symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome in pregnant patients are outlined and the diagnostic methods are reviewed. Carpal tunnel syndrome that occurs during pregnancy almost invariably abates postpartum. Due to the benign course and excellent prognosis in most cases, splinting of the wrist is indicated in the pregnant patient.
