Time trends in incidence and prevalence of carpal tunnel syndrome over eight years according to multiple data sources

Using data from the Pays de la Loire surveillance program of musculoskeletal disorders and National Health Insurance system, we revealed a decreasing time trend for carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) over an 8-year period. These decreasing trends were statistically significant for surgical cases of CTS and uncompensated work-related
CTS, but not for CTS compensated as an occupational disease, while the variation in clinically diagnosed CTS among the COSALI cohort was not statistically significant.
