Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Secondary to Acute Thrombosis of Persistent Median Artery and Review of the Literature

30 April 2019 | Antoine Lessard, Elisabeth Lorange, James Lee
We report a case in which a twenty-eight-year-old manual labourer presented with acute thrombosis in a persistent median artery which triggered acute carpal tunnel symptoms. A bifid median nerve was found upon carpal tunnel release. The knowledge of the existence of this anatomic variation is important in order to prevent inadvertent injury.
