Aim The study aims to know the correlation between electrophysiological determinants and clinical grading among patients or subjects suffering from Carpal Tunnel syndrome (CTS), and also we evaluated the clinical attributes. Methods A prospective study was conducted at Department of Neurology, PMSSY, Bangalore Medical College and Research Institute, A total 78 case were prospectively observed for the period of six months (39 cases for control and 29 cases for study cases). The study was correlated with age and gender matched control intervention and we extrapolate the any significant correlation between the clinical grades and various attributes of study traits. All the traits were carefully assessed by using logistic regression analysis and Fisher F- test statistics. Results A total 78 cases, male comprises 39 (50%) and female was 39 (50%) for control and study population respectively. All cases were considered for the study. The distal motor latency was significantly correlated with different age group of the population and CMAP and conduction velocity not shows any significant relation with clinical severity of CTS .Since, the median sensory latency and nerve conduction velocity seen in study population and well appreh ension with clinical different grading of CTS. Conclusion Summing of the results concludes that, the sensory conduction appears to be more sensitive (95%) AUC 0. 89 and significantly correlated when compared to motor conduction attributes, the correlation besides with clinical severity of CTS apart from gender and age matched cases
