Median nerve compression by Struthers ligament.
  1. L Suranyi


    A 61-year-old patient presented with progressive weakness, pain and numbness in the left arm and hand.

At surgery Struthers ligament was found compressing the median nerve. No bony spur was found by palpation or on radiological examination.
