Nerve entrapment syndromes provoking motor deficits in the upper extremity

ByIoannis Tsionos, Dominique Le Viet

Nerve entrapment syndromes implicate compression of nerves by adjacent anatomic elements. This compression takes place particularly as the nerve traverses some ‘naturally tight ’ passages, and it can be aggravated by the presence of some aberration in local anatomy. Such phenomena frequently have some dynamic composite; that is, they are manifested or intensified after some repetitive movements or in some specific position of nearby articulations.
