After applying a local anesthetic to numb the wrist, a small incision is created to facilitate the use of a microknife device. This tool, guided by real-time ultrasound, safely navigates under the transverse carpal ligament.
Carpal Tunnel Release Effectiveness
The procedure involves using a balloon expansion to separate the median nerve and surrounding vessels, thereby enabling a safe incision of the transverse carpal ligament. This process alleviates nerve pressure, significantly improving symptoms in the wrist and hand, as depicted in the accompanying video demonstration.
