Abstract: 

One of the main causes of hand dysfunction is carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and because of its high occurrence, early diagnosis is very important and may reduce disability caused by this condition. In addition to paraclinical procedures including electro diagnostic (EDX) studies and median nerve sonography, a variety of clinical tests have been suggested for assessment of CTS among them, Tinel’s test (TT) and Phalen’s test (PT) are the most popular ones.3 Previous studies revealed differences in sensitivity and specificity with values of 61-91 percent and 33-93 percent for the PT, and 41-74 percent and 80-91 percent for the TT, respectively. Carpal compression test (CCT) was introduced recently and had greater sensitivity and specificity than TT and PT in some studies.4,5 In this study, we aimed to compare the efficacy of CCT with TT and PT in diagnosis of CTS.
