    The cubital tunnel is a space of the dorsal medial elbow which allows passage of the ulnar nerve around the is bordered medially by the medial epicondyle of the humerus, laterally by the olecranon process of the ulna and the tendinous arch joining the humeral and ulnar heads of the flexor carpi ulnaris. The roof of the cubital tunnel is elastic and formed by a myofascial . Cubital Tunnel Syndrome (ulnar neuropathy) is a condition that is caused by compression to the ulnar nerve often by connective tissue or bone. The ulnar nerve, one of the three main nerves in the arm, passes just under the skin’s surface close to the elbow or “funny bone”.

    Cubital Tunnel Syndrome Introduction Cubital tunnel syndrome is less common than CTS. It is not uncommon among baseball pitchers as the twisting arm motion puts an extra pressure on the nerve at the elbow level. Alternative names for this syndrome. Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is caused by impingement of the ulnar nerve (the funny bone) as it wraps around the inside of your elbow. The nerve can be pinched by many different structures along its course. When the elbow is flexed, the ulnar nerve has to stretch around the back of the elbow, which can also cause problems.

    Example of nighttime orthosis for cubital tunnel syndrome Our senior hand therapist will help determine which activities aggravate the symptoms, and instruct in modifying these activities. Hand treatment may include exercises for the arm and hand, taping, fitting for a padded elbow sleeve, as well as a custom made orthosis for night use. Cubital tunnel syndrome occurs when the ulnar nerve that travels down the elbow behind the “funny bone,” becomes compressed or entrapped. Many medical conditions such as bone spurs, ganglion cysts or tumors in the cubital tunnel can be the cause of pressure and irritation of the ulnar nerve, but sometimes repetitive motion can serve as the culprit.

Cubital tunnel syndrome, also called ulnar nerve entrapment is a condition caused by compression of the ulnar nerve in an area of the elbow called the cubital tunnel.

The ulnar nerve travels down the back of the elbow behind the bony bump called the medial epicondyle and through a passageway called the cubital tunnel. Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that involves pressure or stretching of the ulnar nerve (also known as the “funny bone” nerve), which can cause numbness or tingling in the ring and small fingers, pain in the forearm, and/or weakness in the hand.

Cubital tunnel syndrome is the second most common entrapment neuropathy, after carpal tunnel syndrome. 61 Within the cubital tunnel, the ulnar nerve (C8, T1) may be compressed at two separate, but nearby and related, locations 6, 61, 62 (Figure ).

The ulnar nerve gives sensation to the little finger, a portion of the ring finger, and the back of the hand on the side towards the little finger/5. diagnosis of cubital tunnel syndrome can be made clinically but should be confirmed with a nerve conduction study a plain x-ray will show if there is bony impingement of the cubital tunnel ultrasound may show swelling of the ulnar nerve and is useful in confirming the position of the ulnar nerve before surgery.

The ulnar nerve passes posterior to the medial epicondyle of the humerus in the cubital tunnel. The cubital tunnel is a fibroosseous channel formed by the olecranon process laterally, the posterior cortex of the medial epicondyle medially, the elbow joint capsule and posterior bundle of the medial collateral ligament anteriorly, and the ligament of Osborne (the cubital retinaculum) Cited by: Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is a nerve compression syndrome that affects the ulnar nerve near the inner elbow.

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is similar in nature to conditions like Carpal Tunnel syndrome, which is also caused by increased pressure on a nerve, leading to weakness and pain in certain areas below the nerve.Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common entrapment neuropathy, affecting approximately 3 to 6 percent of adults in the general population.
