In the amyloidosis community, we are quickly learning that carpal tunnel syndrome can be one of the earliest symptoms/indicators of amyloidosis, sometimes presenting up to a decade before diagnosis. In addition, it is suspected that amyloidosis is not as rare as we once thought. Interestingly, carpal tunnel release surgery is helping to illustrate just that.
The Amyloidosis Speakers Bureau (ASB) had a wonderful year in 2021, settling into a new normal of virtual presentations. We gave 61 presentations to 2,400 U.S. medical students and internal medicine residency programs. We invite you to read more about our exciting and trajectory-changing educational initiative.
