Entrapment neuropathies can be common conditions with the potential to cause significant disability. Correct diagnosis is essential for proper management. This article is a review of recent developments related to diagnosis and treatment of various common and uncommon nerve entrapment disorders. When combined with classical peripheral nerve examination techniques, innovations in imaging modalities have led to more reliable diagnoses. Moreover, innovations in conservative and surgical techniques have been controversial as to their effects on patient outcome, but randomized controlled trials have provided important information regarding common operative techniques. Treatment strategies for painful peripheral neuropathies are also reviewed.
