This is a video showing an open carpal tunnel release on a real patient under tourniquet. Releasing the transverse carpal ligament helps alleviate numbness in the median nerve distribution. It can be performed under Bier block anesthesia and takes about 30 minutes to perform. Ensuring a complete release is important to prevent recurrent symptoms. Physical therapy after surgery may be helpful to speed recovery. www.mtpsa.com www.hand411.com www.morgantownplasticsurgery.com www.mcclellanplasticsurgery.com
