Abstract

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is still today the most common nerve entrapment syndrome at the level of the upper extremity. When surgery is indicated, the surgical treatment of choice is the opening of the retinaculum. The authors describe their experience on 12,702 carpal tunnel decompressions, by the endoscopic procedure in a period of 14 years, outlining the indications, post-operative treatment, complications and results.
