OBJECTIVE: We aimed to assess the correlation between ultrasonographic and electrodiagnostic findings to determine the localization of the ulnar trapping at the elbow. DESIGN AND SETTING: A cross-sectional and non-interventional trial was conducted in patients diagnosed as ulnar nerve entrapment in physical medicine and rehabilitation department of a teaching hospital. PARTICIPANTS: Between January 2017 and April 2017, 14 patients diagnosed as ulnar nerve entrapment (UNE) with short segment nerve conduction study were enrolled. INTERVENTIONS: The elbow area divided into 4 segments with 2 cm intervals. All patients underwent ultrasonographic and electrodiagnostic examination. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Nerve conduction velocity (NCV) of each segment was measured. Cross-sectional areas (CSA) of the ulnar nerve was measured at 5 levels. The proximal CSA/distal CSA ratio (PDR) was calculated by proportioning the CSA values for each segments. The highest value of PDR was accepted as trapping segment while the segment with the lowest NCV was accepted electrophysiologically (Provided to be less than 50 m /s). RESULTS: A total of 80 PDR and NCV measurements were taken from 20 elbows. Statistically significant negative correlation (r: -0,554 p <0.001) was found between general PDR and NCV values. When we assume that NCV is below 50 m/s as the gold standard; the cut-off point for PDR was found as 1.08 with 70% sensitivity and 92.5% specificity. The minimum NCV value and the maximum PDR value were mostly seen in the 3(rd) segment compatible with cubital tunnel. CONCLUSION: Ultrasonography seems to be advantageous because it is more comfortable for the patient and requires shorter time than electroneuromyography. In our knowledge, it is the first study to determine ulnar nerve entrapment by using not only CSA but also PDR as a ratio method with ultrasound.

Ultrasonography (US) of the median nerve has been increasingly studied and used for confirmation of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS... The median nerve was recorded transversely at the forearm, at the carpal tunnel inlet, in the mid tunnel, and at the carpal tunnel outlet. For determining the parameters' diagnostic value, sensitivities, specificities, and area under the curve (AUC) values were calculated ...
