Table 4 Visual analogue scale, Boston questionnaire of CTS and electrophysiological parameters of median nerve in the third group of patients at 6 months post-medication compared to baseline parameters

From: Platelet-rich plasma injection versus surgical and medical treatment of mild-moderate carpal tunnel syndrome

Group 3 baseline 0
M ± SD
6 months post-injection
M ± SD
T-Test P-Value
VAS 8.0 ± 1.125 7.74 ± 1.45 1.97 0.058
Symptoms severity 3.23 ± 0.43 3.13 ± 0.67 1.14 0.264
Functional state 2.87 ± 0.34 2.81 ± 0.46 1.48 0.571
Median motor latency 5.41 ± 0.49 5.32 ± 0.59 0.721 0.477
Median sensory latency 5.52 ± 0.87 5.46 ± 0.99 1.79 0.083
  1. There is significant improvement of pain and insignificant improvement of function and electrophysiological parameters regarding median peak sensory and distal motor latency at 6 months post-medication
  2. M mean, SD standard deviation, VAS visual analogue scale
