When this tunnel is reduced for any reason, the pressure inside and the median nerve (which runs from the forearm to the hand) it is also compressed. This causes what is known as carpal tunnel syndrome, peripheral neuropathy caused by performing repetitive hand and wrist movements. Patients with this disease suffer from pain in the wrist and forearm, feeling of numbness, cramps and tingling in the thumb and index fingers especially. This syndrome should be treated by surgery carpal tunnel to avoid the appearance of weakness and atrophy in some muscles of the hand and clumsiness in handling objects. The carpal tunnel surgery is to release the nerve and is performed both open or conventional manner, as by endoscopy. The pain after surgery disappears in a few days and the other symptoms are decreasing in the short term, depending on the severity of the injury. In addition, rehabilitation after carpal tunnel surgery is necessary, by performing specific exercises of hand movements or physiotherapy. ...

It can be done for many reasons, including injuries are included in the hand, rheumatic changes in the structures of the hand, congenital deformities (present at birth) and infections. These include carpal tunnel syndrome and Dupuytren's contracture. Therefore, depending on the cause of the problem, you can perform skin grafts, immobilization of a fractured bone, tendon repair, joint replacement, relocation, surgical drainage, fasciotomy and repair of nerves in the hand (ulnar, median and radial). Damage to these nerves can cause decreased ability to move the hand and sensitivity. ...

There are also intra-articular fracture, which extends into the wrist;Extra-articular fracture, which does not extend inwards;open or open fracture when the fractured bone cross the skin and which must act quickly to prevent an infection; comminuted fracture where the bone is divided into more than two parts. ...
Ankle arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique that lets you view and work directly inside the joint, without opening, thanks to a tiny camera.

The stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal that puts pressure on the spinal cord and roots. When located in the lower part of the spinal column it is known as lumbar canal stenosis, while when the narrowing occurs in the top of the column is called cervical canal stenosis. The lumbar and cervical areas are usually being the most affected, although the narrowing channel does not cause pain if not compress any nerve structure. The spinal stenosis often occur gradually by the aging process, due to the deformation of bones and tissues around the spinal canal. Usually begins to affect people over 50 years, although it also occurs in young people with a spinal trauma. The treatment of various types of spinal stenosis is usually based on the use of medications (anti-inflammatories or steroids) to reduce pain and inflammation with rest time, or physical therapy. Surgery is recommended only where nerve compression which progressively worsens. ...

This technique achieves the neighboring joints ordered to carry out the functions of the fist and palm. The aim of this operation is to relieve pain, slow the development of the disease, which causes correct deformities, and provide stability to the joint that has been damaged by arthritis or muscle weakness. Although wrist arthrodesis achieved a high degree of improvement in all these areas, it is possible that in some patients the difficulty lifting or doing certain movements keep persisting.
