Ulnar neuropathy at the elbow
Motor loss is usually the most important problem in ulnar nerve entrapment, most notably in the intrinsic muscles of the hand. The motor disability is primarily related to loss of coordination in tasks requiring precision and to loss of thumb pincer strength. In the majority of patients, the initial symptoms are intermittent ulnar distribution numbness and tingling, often associated with elbow flexion.
