Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common nerve entrapment disorder causing considerable discomfort, activity limitations and even a change in occupation. Appropriate medical and surgical treatment can interrupt the progression of the syndrome and avoid permanent disability. We report here a case of a woman who was unable to work because of persistent CTS. Her disabling symptoms were completely resolved and she was able to return to work after a successful endoscopic carpal tunnel release.
