- •Certain anatomic variations such as body mass index (BMI), wrist ratio (WR), wrist to palm ratio (WPR), shape index (SI) may be accounted for as CTS risk factors.
- •BMI & WPR was significantly higher in patients with CTS than controls for both genders.
- •WR was significantly higher in both CTS males and females when compared to the healthy male and female controls.
- •No significant difference was found in the SI between CTS male patients and control male groups.
