Natural History and Conservative Management of Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Abstract : Cubital tunnel syndrome is the second most common nerve compression syndrome, second to carpal tunnel syndrome. It is, however, the most common site for ulnar nerve compression ). Accuracy in diagnosis is key in identifying the cubital tunnel as the site of compression, and, depending on the severity of the symptoms, nonoperative and operative treatment options have been proposed. In this chapter, we discuss the course of ulnar neuropathy caused by compression at the cubital tunnel and the conservative management of this syndrome. Although a consensus regarding duration of treatment, type of splinting, and degree of splinting is lacking, overall, a consistency in the support of the effectiveness of this modality in the spectrum of treatment options for cubital tunnel syndrome exists.
