Carpal Tunnel Release

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve becomes compressed causing pain, weakness, and numbness in the hand and wrist.

While both open and endoscopic surgical techniques are used, CONMED’s CTS Relief Kit® for an endoscopic procedure utilizes a proximal portal to cut the transverse carpal ligament resulting in median nerve relief. This method has proven faster recovery for patients, as well as greater improvement in symptoms and functional status.1 Further evidence supporting the benefits of utilizing an endoscopic approach was shown in Benson’s 2006 clinical study comparing endoscopic versus open arthroscopic release. The endoscopic approach was proven more minimally invasive and resulted in less tendon and nerve injury post procedure.2

Carpal Tunnel Release Kit

The CTS Relief Kit® provides surgeons with a complete set of simple to use, disposable instruments for endoscopic release of the transverse carpal ligament through a single portal. The kit consists of one small dilator, one larger dilator, one slotted guide and one blade. The pen-like knife handle improves the surgeon’s tactile feel and control of the instrument while cutting. The “D”- shaped slotted cannula helps to shield adjacent neurovascular structures from potential damage. Utilizing the CTS Relief Kit® for the endoscopic technique allows the surgeon to resect the ligament under direct visualization through a standard 4mm arthroscope.
