Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common peripheral nerve compression syndrome. Treatment options include wrist-neutral bracing, corticosteroid injections, operative release of the transverse carpal ligament, and symptomrelief options. Endoscopic carpal tunnel release may give patients a faster recovery compared with traditional open release, but there are no ultimate differences in outcome among the various surgical options.
