Definitions for "Nerve Entrapment"

A region of mechanical neuritis in which the nerve is maintained in an irritated state by external pressure created by encroachment or impingement from a nearby anatomical structure; for example, pressure on the median nerve by swollen tendons and their sheaths in the carpal tunnel lead to the carpal tunnel syndrome.
