Carpal tunnel surgery provides the same result in most cases, which is the release of the carpal ligament. Achieving that goal can come through various methods. During surgery, the transverse carpal ligament relieves compression of the median nerve and parasethsia symptoms.
Carpal tunnel release has a low recurrence rate, which makes it a favorable choice for severe symptoms that do not respond to traditional methods. Endoscopic carpal tunnel release means smaller incisions and no division of the Palmar aponeurosis. The palmer fascia and subcutaneous tissues are not affected to the same extent as with a traditional surgery.
