Abstract

The choice for surgical treatment of cubital tunnel syndrome is no clearer today than when it was reviewed 10 years ago. There continue to be no significant prospective randomized trials to adequately compare the different surgical techniques. Even if such a trial were performed, most hand surgeons would probably continue to be skeptical. In the end, each surgeon must rely on his or her own personal experience or judgment. Based on the authors' experience in the treatment of cubital tunnel syndrome, they are confident that anterior transmuscular transposition of the ulnar nerve obtains the best results when the preoperative algorithm is properly applied and early postoperative physical therapy is instituted.
