PMID: 33833175.


The median nerve can become compressed at multiple points in the arm, causing carpal tunnel-, pronator-, anterior interosseous-, or lacertus syndrome. Anatomical variations are potential reasons of persisting or recurrent symptoms of median nerve compression and are often recognized late. The objective of this study is to provide a comprehensive list of rare anatomical variations and malformations causing median nerve compression.
