530 Possible Causes for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Progressive Contractures

  • Dupuytren Contracture

    This problem is caused by a progressive contracture (shortening) of the palmar fascia that produces flexion deformities of the fingers.[vereencenter.com] ‘These include carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, Dupuytren's contracture, frozen shoulder, spondylosis of the neck and cramp of the hand (writer's cramp).’[en.oxforddictionaries.com] Tunnel Syndrome Wrist Fracture Arthroscopic Wrist Surgery Wrist joint replacement Hand Surgery Carpal Tunnel Release[bocacareorthopedics.com]

  • Osteoarthritis

    Another characteristic symptom of the disease is the progressive incapacity of the joint to function, leading – in the long run – to loss of mobility.[oafifoundation.com] Inflammatory and proinflammatory cytokines have also been shown to be elevated in the flexor tenosynovium of idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This limitation is mainly related to the blocking of voluntary muscle functioning and the reflex contracture.[physio-pedia.com]

  • Entrapment Neuropathy

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Acute renal failure secondary to progressively decreasing renal blood flow (hepatorenal syndrome) may develop.[merckmanuals.com] Chronic alcoholism, rather than liver disease, causes Dupuytren contracture of the palmar fascia (see Figure: Dupuytren Contracture ), vascular spiders, myopathy, and peripheral[merckmanuals.com]

  • Raynaud Phenomenon

    As the disease progresses, skin and subcutaneous tissue of the fingers become stiffer, joints become immobile, and contractures develop.[clinicalgate.com] Carpal tunnel syndrome. The carpal tunnel is a narrow passage in your wrist that protects a major nerve to your hand.[cedars-sinai.edu] ) Carpal tunnel syndrome Obstructive arterial disease (blood vessel disease) Some medications, including beta-blockers, ergotamine preparations, certain chemotherapy drugs[my.clevelandclinic.org]

  • Eosinophilic Fasciitis

    He presented with progressive painless joint contractures of his right wrist and fingers, and reduced muscle strength of his right arm, without obvious skin changes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Extracutaneous involvement has been limited to a chronic synovitis and tenosynovitis, the latter frequently associated with the carpal tunnel syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Polyarthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome were observed. The clinical courses demonstrated the potential for spontaneous remission, relapse, and late recurrence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Erosion of the articular cartilage, together with ligamentous changes, result in deformity and contractures. As the disease progresses, pain and deformity increase.[orthoinfo.aaos.org] The predominant clinical findings include palmar tenosynovitis, small joint synovitis, and carpal tunnel syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Flexion contractures may require intensive exercise, casting, or immobilization (eg, splinting) in progressively more stretched-open positions.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    Surgical Treatment Progressive contractures may be improved with tendon lengthening but recurrence rates may be high.[posna.org] Walking braces for the ankle-foot or the knee-ankle-foot can help support weak muscles and keep the body flexible, slowing progression of contractures. Medications.[orthoinfo.aaos.org] Orthopaedic care - orthotics or surgery for contractures and scoliosis. Scoliosis is usually progressive and treated with surgery [ 8 ].[patient.info]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis
