Caption: Carpal tunnel. On the palmar face of the wrist we can observe an anatomical tunnel called carpal tunnel. The tendons and the median nerve slip through this tunnel which enable the fingers to flex. When the median nerve (in yellow) is compressed by the annular ligament of the carpus (in white), we speak about carpal tunnel syndrome. This syndrome is characterized by a tingling and numbness in the fingers. We also observe a loss of muscular strength in the thumb. This condition is more frequent among menopausal women.
