median-ulnar comparative studies

Median and ulnar nerves can be compared using several techniques mainly developed to assess the motor median nerve conduction in the carpal tunnel. In some methods, authors suggested to compare the distal latencies between the compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs) obtained from the abductor pollicis brevis (APB) and abductor digiti minimi (ADM) muscles after stimulation of the median and ulnar nerves at the wrist, respectively. Some authors instead, in order to compare the median and ulnar nerves, measured the difference in distal latencies obtained from the second lumbrical (2L) and interossei (INT) muscles, and they found a statistical significant prolonged lumbrical-interossei latency difference (2L-INT DIFF) in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS).
