Abstract

Nineteen consecutive patients with carpal tunnel syndrome were treated with pyridoxine. Two thirds of the patients who specifically presented symptoms of median neuropathy eventually required surgical release. Although pyridoxine may have a place alongside other nonsurgical modalities in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, surgical release continues to be indicated in many patients with carpal tunnel syndrome.
