Abstract

Carpal tunnel release is one of the most common procedures performed in the upper extremity and while outcomes are usually very good, complications do occur. Iatrogenic injury to the median nerve is a devastating complication which can be minimized by careful surgical technique. Those patients who sustain an intraoperative nerve injury require careful assessment and meticulous surgical reconstruction in order to maximize their recovery.
