Carpal Tunnel Surgery

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common and painful disorder caused by compression of the median nerve within the carpal tunnel at the wrist. Carpal tunnel surgery is performed to relieve the pressure on the nerve so that normal nerve conduction may take place again.

There is little free space under the transverse carpal ligament and, should any swelling occur, the large median nerve can readily be compressed, causing carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is often caused by repetitive and forceful movement of the wrist. This results in inflammation of the tendons that line the carpal tunnel area. Thus, it can be prevented by avoiding these types of movements at work or in leisure activities. Treatment may involve the use of antinflammatory medications such as aspirin or NSAIDs with or without the use of splints or other aids that limit the motion of the wrist. Surgery is necessary if compression of the nerve leads to signs of wasting in the muscles activated by the median nerve.
