This procedure is an open carpal tunnel release surgery performed under local anesthesia for the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. The classical presentation of carpal tunnel syndrome includes pain and paraesthesia in the median nerve sensory distribution of the hand. This is often worse at night and exacerbated by activities that require a fixed position of the wrist. It is caused by compression of the median nerve by the carpal tunnel in the wrist.
We present a step-by-step guide to achieve patient positioning, anesthesia, access to the carpal ligament, identification of the median nerve and wound closure as performed by the authors at our institution.
