To the Editor: In their study of a yoga-based
intervention for carpal tunnel syndrome, Dr Garfinkel and
colleagues1 should have included data reporting how often
the 25 subjects with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS)
demonstrated similar responses in both wrists, and their data should
have been analyzed by subject response rather than by wrist response.
