Calcium Hydroxylapatite

Exacerbation of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome After CaHA Injections

Radiesse injections may exacerbate carpal tunnel syndrome

A case study published in the British Journal of Dermatology (January 2019) suggests that physicians performing hand rejuvenation treatments with calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA, Radiesse) fillers should inform patients that treatment may exacerbate carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms. Researchers J.L. Feig, et al, recounted the case of a 66-year-old female patient who presented with acute exacerbation of median nerve compression symptoms at the wrist following injection with CaHA for hand rejuvenation.
