Surgery Best for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Date:9/24/2009

ks, some might prefer early surgery while others may prefer partial recovery to potential surgical risk," wrote Dr. Isam Atroshi and Christina Gummesson, both of Lund University.

"Nevertheless, patients with carpal tunnel syndrome who do not have satisfactory improvement with non-surgical treatment should be offered surgery," the editorialists concluded.

Another study in the special surgery issue of The Lancet found that placing a drain in the skull after surgery reduces the risk of death and recurrence among patients with chronic subdural hematoma, in which blood collects under the dura, the outer protective membrane that covers the brain.

After surgery to drain the blood, between 5 percent and 30 percent of patients have recurrence of chronic subdural hematoma and require redrainage, Peter Hutchinson of Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, U.K., and colleagues noted.

In the study, the researchers assessed 215 patients, aged 18 years and older, with a chronic subdural hematoma who were treated using the burr-hole surgery technique. Of those patients, 108 had a plastic drain inserted a few centimeters into the subdural space after surgery. The drain was left in for a few days.

Subdural hematoma recurred in 10 of 108 people (9.3 percent) with the drain and in 26 of 107 (24 percent) of patients without the drain. After six months, 8.6 percent of patients in the drain group and 18.1 of those in the non-drain group had died, the researchers reported.
