Abstract

Peripheral nerves traverse through different soft tissue compartments in the upper and lower extremities via specific anatomical tunnels, where they are susceptible to entrapment. Common sites in the upper extremity include carpal tunnel, cubital tunnel and radial tunnel. Common sites in the lower extremity include piriformis, fibular neck, and tarsal tunnel. Compressive peripheral neuropathy can develop in these sites, and are amenable for surgical decompression.
