Carpal Tunnel Syndrome with Surgical Release - Medical Animation
This medical animation shows carpal tunnel syndrome and two procedures to correct it. First, the anatomy of the wrist is shown, including the compressed median nerve, the transverse carpal ligament, and the area of the hand innervated by the median nerve. A close up view of the wrist shows the transverse carpal ligament compressing the median nerve. Then, the open release procedure is shown, including a single incision site over the palm and wrist, and the division of the transverse carpal ligament beneath to decompress the median nerve. The endoscopic procedure is shown next, including the locations of two smaller incision sites, the insertion of two trocars, and a close up endoscopic view of the compressed median nerve. At the end of the procedure, the incisions are closed, and a cast fades on over the wrist.
