  1. Carpal tunnel syndrome prevalence in the general population.

    Article - En anglais

    To study the prevalence of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) in the general population and the value of brachialgia paraesthetica nocturna (BPN) in diagnosing CTS, an age and sex stratified random sample of 715 subjects was taken from the population register of Maastricht (The Netherlands) and surrounding villages, between September 1983 and July 1985.

    The response rate was 70%. Of these, 12 CTS cases had already been diagnosed.
