  1. Operative treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome in Denmark : Results of a questionnaire.

    Article - En anglais

    The aim of our study was to determine the incidence of operative treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome in Denmark and to see whether there was a consensus about the place of preoperative electromyography and nerve conduction studies.

    A questionnaire was mailed to all surgical departments (n=70) and all registered private surgical practices (n=214) in Denmark.

    The incidence of operation was about 0.61 per 1,000 population.

    Most surgeons used preoperative electromyograms and nerve conduction studies in less than 50% of cases.

    The use of preoperative testing was related to the surgical speciality.
