Cubital tunnel syndrome: diagnosis by high-resolution ultrasonography.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the morphologic changes in the ulnar nerve in cubital tunnel syndrome with high-resolution ultrasonography. The mean values of the short axis (cm) x long axis (cm) at the arm, epicondyle, and forearm levels were 0.057 +/- 0.01, 0.068 +/- 0.019, and 0.062 +/- 0.01 in control group; 0.069 +/- 0.04, 0.139 +/- 0.06, and 0.066 +/- 0.023 in the symptomatic side in patients with cubital tunnel syndrome; and 0.063 +/- 0.029, 0.068 +/- 0.029, and 0.057 +/- 0.012 in the normal side in patients with cubital tunnel syndrome. No significant difference was found in the area (short axis x long axis) of the ulnar nerve at the arm, epicondyle and forearm levels between the left and right ulnar nerve in the control group and between the control group and the normal side in symptomatic patients. However, the mean value of the area of the ulnar nerve at the epicondyle level in symptomatic patients was significantly larger than that of the control group and that of the contralateral side in patients, and the P value was less than 0.001. High resolution ultrasonography can detect morphologic changes in the ulnar nerve accurately, and it could therefore be useful as a screening and even follow-up modality in patients with cubital tunnel syndrome.
