Handcuff neuropathy among U.S. prisoners of war from Operation Desert Storm



Handcuff neuropathy among U.S. prisoners of war from Operation Desert Storm



Military Medicine 158(4): 253-254



Handcuff neuropathy was the most common neurologic problem acquired by U.S. prisoners of war during Operation Desert Storm. Neurologic deficits were exclusively sensory in all those affected and began to resolve shortly after their release from captivity. Some individuals expressed concern that these injuries could be career-threatening. One of those repeatedly restrained felt that he had discovered measures that could be undertaken to lessen the likelihood of developing neuropathy.
