What is carpal tunnel syndrome? 

Carpal tunnel syndrome, also known as median nerve compression, is a condition affecting the hand, which causes tingling, numbness or weakness in the hand or wrist. The median nerve is located on the palm side of your hand which is also known as the carpal tunnel. The median nerve is responsible for providing sensation to the thumb, the index finger, and parts of the ring finger. The nerve is responsible for the muscle going to the thumb. Carpal tunnel syndrome can occur in any or both of your hands.

Diagnosis

A doctor can diagnose a carpal tunnel syndrome by doing a physical examination and tests called nerve conduction studies. The physical examination may include a thorough evaluation of your hand, shoulder, wrist, neck or any other parts that can cause pressure in the nerve. The doctor may also check if there is any tenderness or swelling in the wrist. The doctor may further check the sensation of the fingers and the strength of the muscles in your hand.

Surgery

To relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, the doctor conducts a surgery called Carpal Tunnel Release surgery. During a carpal tunnel release or surgery, the surgeon cuts through the ligament that is pressing down on the carpal tunnel. This makes more room for the median nerve and tendons passing through the tunnel, and usually improves pain and function.

When does a person require a carpal tunnel release?

  • The doctor might suggest a carpal tunnel release when: The nonsurgical interventions for carpal tunnel syndrome fails to provide relief from the pain
  • The muscles of the hands or wrists are weak and actually getting smaller because of the severe pinching of the median nerve
  • The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome have lasted 6 months or longer with no relief
  • The doctor performs an electromyography test of the median nerve and determines that you have carpal tunnel syndrome.

What are the best treatment options available for carpal tunnel syndrome in Delhi?

To choose the best treatment alternate, a physical evaluation of the hand is done, and a customized treatment plan is formulated. The treatment is usually begun with non-surgical non-invasive methods, which may include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, steroidal injections, wrist braces or wrist splints, ice packs, and physiotherapy. But such alternates often fail to address the underlying cause, and the symptoms may reappear after a while. Also, if the diagnosis is made at a later stage, such methods will not prove to be effective. Then, the most appropriate treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome is carpal tunnel release surgery.

Carpal tunnel release surgery is a minimally invasive surgical method that aims to decompress the nerves that had been compressed in the carpal tunnel. The surgery is highly effective in treating carpal tunnel syndrome as it addresses the underlying issue, hence, eliminating all symptoms.

How is carpal tunnel release surgery performed?

The surgery is minimally invasive and aims to release the pressure on the median nerve. The surgery makes use of an endoscope, which involves a flexible, thin tube that has a camera attached at its end. A small incision is made on the risk and the endoscope is inserted through it. This helps the surgeon to visualize the internal structure without a large incision. When the ligament is located, a tiny cutting tool is inserted to release the ligament. This, in turn, releases the pressure on the median nerve and eliminates the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. 

Post-operative care and rehabilitation

After carpal tunnel surgery, most patients are discharged on the same day. At the time of discharge, patients are given some instructions for rehabilitation and post-operative care. The instructions may include the following. 

  • Use of a splint for a few weeks. 
  • Elevation of hand and use of ice packs to reduce swelling and inflammation. 
  • Regular cleaning of the surgical incision.
  • Practice a healthy diet to help the healing process along. 
  • Physiotherapy for restoration of normal function. 

Are there any risks and complications related to carpal tunnel syndrome surgery?

Most patients don’t experience any complications and risks after a carpal tunnel release surgery. However, just like any other surgical procedure, the possibility of complications is not inevitable. 

Some specific risks associated with carpal tunnel release surgery are as follows.

  • Development of infection.
  • Prolonged pain in the wrist.
  • Stiffness and loss of function of the wrist and hand. 
  • Numbness in the thumb, middle, and index finger.
  • Tenderness of the surgical scar.

As said, in most cases, no such complications are seen. But every patient has a different situation. Discuss the risks associated with carpal tunnel release surgery in your particular situation with your orthopedic surgeon in precise detail before deciding on the surgery.
