About Radial Tunnel Syndrome

Radial Tunnel Syndrome can be a difficult diagnosis to make. Typically patients complain of:

  • Burning of the forearm.
  • Pain in the forearm.
  • Soreness along the radial nerve, located in the forearm.

Radial tunnel syndrome is often confused and thought to be tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) because they present some of the same symptoms.

Radial tunnel syndrome is caused by a compressed radial nerve in the forearm. There are several “points” where the nerve can be compressed.

The most common way to diagnose radial tunnel syndrome is by history and physical examination. Sometimes a diagnostic steroid or Lidocaine injection can help make the diagnosis but one should be cautious not to cause harm to the nerve with the injection.

About the Endoscopic Assisted Radial Tunnel Decompression

Most patients with radial tunnel syndrome need surgical nerve decompression. Our technique is an endoscopic assisted radial nerve decompression. A tiny incision is made, the radial nerve is identified, and the nerve is decompressed with the assistance of the endoscope. It is a minimally-invasive procedure and it usually leaves no scars.
