Seventy-three patients were surgically treated for a variety of peripheral entrapment neuropathies. Although the carpal tunnel syndrome was most common, compressions of the ulnar, radial, peroneal, posterior tibial, and suprascapular nerves were also found. In several cases, the entrapment was only a sign of the more generalized systemic disease present.
