What is the double-crush phenomenon? A nerve may be compressed at more than one site (Fig. 4-9), a condition known as double-crush syndrome. Since nerve tissue is extremely sensitive to ischemia, pressure on the nerve at the neck, at the thoracic out­ let, or at the elbow will make the nerve even more susceptible to even mild pressure in the carpal tunnel. The idea here is that the nerve tract is susceptible to mechanical injury because of either tethering at the intervertebral foramen or proximity to unyielding bone or simply because branching at an abrupt angle involves a diminishing of the nerve's gliding mechanisms.
