Multiple Nerve Damages Because of Occupational Risk Factors

Ismail Boyraz, Bunyamin Koc, Hakan Sarman, Hilal Caglar


Upper extremity problems due to working are frequently encountered. We presented a case of bilateral multiple nerve damages that were thought to be secondary to working and were evaluated to eliminate the probability of presence of other etiological factors. The patient was a press operator and he was performing elbow flexion and wrist extension against resistance at work. He had numbness in the first and second fingers of his right hand and pain in the forearm. His last EMG revealed right median nerve, left median and ulnar palsy, total denervation in the right radial nerve. The patient underwent an operation in the right cubital region. During the operation, compression was found to be due to soft tissue pressure; the radial nerve was released and the neighboring scar tissue was cleaned.
