The routine work-up is the median nerve motor conduction study with recording from the abductor pollicis brevis (APB) muscle, and median nerve sensory conduction study from the digits II or III to wrist and from palm to wrist segments.
The distal latency of median nerve recorded from abductor pollicis brevis stimulating 3 cms.
The median nerve also serves the abductor pollicis brevis, the opponens pollicis, and the superficial head of the flexor pollicis brevis; involves the muscles to the thumb (Li, Harkness, & Goitz, 2005); and is the most specific motor assessment for CTS.
Effects of the adductor pollicis and abductor pollicis brevis on thumb metacarpophalangeal joint laxity before and after ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction.
Motor threshold (MT) is the level of stimulation required to produce movement in a contralateral target muscle, such as the abductor pollicis brevis that causes contraction of the thumb.
A neurological examination demonstrated motor strength changes: 4/5 deltoid and supra and infraspinatus, 3/5 triceps, 1/5 biceps, 2/5 wrist flexion, 0/5 wrist and finger extension, 1/5 lumbricals and interossei, 0/5 abductor pollicis brevis and 3/5 adductor pollicis on the right.
Six subjects with pacemakers received stimulation of the left peroneal nerve at the left ankle and fibular head with the active surface recording electrode placed over the left extensor digitorum brevis muscle and stimulation of the left median nerve at the wrist and elbow with the active surface recording electrode placed over the left abductor pollicis brevis muscle.
There was electrophysiologic evidence on this exam of a mild, bilateral (right = left) median mononeuropathy at or distal to the wrist; demyelinating neuropathic process; affecting both motor and sensory fibers; EMG of the left and right abductor pollicis brevis (APB) was normal.
