Endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery in France

Carpal tunnel syndrome is extremely common (five in 1000 adults in the U.S.) and it corresponds to the compression of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel.

The carpal tunnel is an anatomical region located in the palm of the hand between the carpal bones and the flexor carpi. This tunnel contains nine flexor tendons and a median nerve.

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the synovial tissue surrounding the tendon becomes thickened. It takes more space in the canal and the median nerve is compressed. In most cases, no cause is found for this compression.

More rarely, it can be a compression-related trauma, endocrine causes (pregnancy, thyroid disease, and diabetes) due to a rheumatic (rheumatoid arthritis, amyloidosis). In some cases, this syndrome can be recognised as an occupational disease linked to repetitive flexion-extension.
