Abstract

The surgical anatomy of the palm is complex. Patients with chronic carpal tunnel syndrome may benefit from a number of different nonsurgical and surgical treatments. Surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis. During surgery, the carpal tunnel contents should be checked for anatomical abnormality, degenerative elements, and/or inflammatory conditions.
