Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Cubital tunnel syndrome is a common condition that involves compression of the ulnar nerve at the elbow. The nerve is compressed in a groove along the posterior aspect of the medial epicondyle. This syndrome can develop acutely after direct trauma or chronically over time. Symptoms usually involve aching pain over the medial aspect (inside) of the elbow and numbness and tingling in the ring and small fingers. Prolonged compression may result in weakness and muscle wasting in more severe cases. A thorough clinical examination, along with nerve conduction studies, will help confirm the diagnosis of cubital tunnel syndrome. Initial treatment usually involves activity modification, night splinting and NSAIDs in more acute cases. If conservative management fails, surgical decompression and transposition of the ulnar nerve may be considered.
