Compression neuropathies – injuries of peripheral nerves as result of compression, which influences either by an external force or by a nearby anatomical structure. At present the problem of compression neuropathies is a very urgent one due to a lot of patients suffering from this disease. Carpal tunnel syndrome and cubital tunnel syndrome are the most common CNs. 36 patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (29 females, 7 males) and 17 patients with cubital tunnel syndrome (1 female, 16 males) have been operated on in the Togliatti clinical hospital No. 5 within the period of October 2006-October 2008. Positive dynamics was observed in all the patients in early postoperative period, during control examinations and electromyographic studies.
