Abstract

The tenosynovium within the carpal tunnel consists of a single layer of synovial cells, which lines the bursae within the carpal tunnel, and the subsynovial connective tissue (SSCT), which contains the tendon vasculature and other structural elements. In this study, we used immunogold labeling to localize collagen types within the SSCT in three cadaver specimens and three patients with carpal tunnel syndrome. Positive labeling for collagen types I, III and VI was found with immunoelectron microscopy. Collagen types I and III were codistributed within the SSCT. Type VI was primarily located in microfibrillar structures between collagen bundles, between elastin and collagen bundles and between collagen bundles and cells. There was no difference in the distribution of collagen types when comparing cadaver specimens and carpal tunnel patients.
