Ulnar Nerve Decompression
Ulnar nerve compression is a condition characterized by pressure on the ulnar nerve due to a direct impact to the inner aspect of the elbow.
Characteristics of compressed ulnar nerve:
Cause: Damage to ulnar nerve or surrounding tissue due to trauma or other injury or in rare instances a tumor
Symptoms: Pain at the back or inner aspect of the elbow and forearm associated with inflammation and swelling along with permanent sensation of numbness or tingling and loss of function in the muscles of the hand and medial 1 and half finger.
Treatment: Arthroscopic ulnar nerve decompression is the most successful treatment method to release the compression and decompress ulnar nerve.
