  • Acupuncture and related interventions for the treatment of symptoms associated with carpal tunnel syndrome. [Review]
  • CDCochrane Database Syst Rev 2018 Dec 02; 12:CD011215
  • Choi GH, Wieland LS, … Shin BC
  • CONCLUSIONS: Acupuncture and laser acupuncture may have little or no effect in the short term on symptoms of CTS in comparison with placebo or sham acupuncture. It is uncertain whether acupuncture and related interventions are more or less effective in relieving symptoms of CTS than corticosteroid nerve blocks, oral corticosteroids, vitamin B12, ibuprofen, splints, or when added to NSAIDs plus vitamins, as the certainty of any conclusions from the evidence is low or very low and most evidence is short term. The included studies covered diverse interventions, had diverse designs, limited ethnic diversity, and clinical heterogeneity. High-quality randomised controlled trials (RCTs) are necessary to rigorously assess the effects of acupuncture and related interventions upon symptoms of CTS. Based on moderate to very-low certainty evidence, acupuncture was associated with no serious adverse events, or reported discomfort, pain, local paraesthesia and temporary skin bruises, but not all studies provided adverse event data.
  • Satisfaction With Specific and Nonspecific Diagnoses. [Journal Article]
  • JHJ Hand Surg Am 2018 Nov 27
  • Ottenhoff JSE, Derkzen L, … Ring D
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although nonspecific diagnoses can sometimes be frustrating for both physician and patient, in this small study using a satisfaction measure with a strong ceiling effect, they were no less satisfying to patients on average and corresponded with slightly greater pain intensity than specific diagnoses.The degree to which nonspecific diagnoses (perhaps in combination with compassionate care and incremental monitoring) can be part of a satisfying treatment experience merits additional investigation.
  • Gender Disparities in Preoperative Resource Use for Wrist Arthroscopy. [Journal Article]
  • PRPlast Reconstr Surg 2018; 142(5):1267-1274
  • Billig JI, Sterbenz JM, … Chung KC
  • CONCLUSIONS: Significant gender differences exist in the preoperative care for patients undergoing wrist arthroscopy. Men use more imaging, implying more intense preoperative investigation for wrist pain, whereas women use more conservative measures, highlighting possible implicit provider biases in preoperative management and potential gender differences in disease presentation.
