Background: Open carpel tunnel release is conventional standard technique for carpel tunnel release. But the open carpel tunnel release resulted in complication like post-operative scar tenderness, delay in gaining grip strength, pain was more, hypertrophied scar mark on skin, number of absence from work was more. There for new technique of endoscopic carpel tunnel release was introduced. Endoscopic carpel tunnel release promised better result than open carpel tunnel release and most of the complication were reduced. Therefore we conducted study open versus endoscopic carpel tunnel release.
Material And Method: 30 patients with carpel tunnel syndrome were included in this prospective study from year May 2017 to May 2018 with follow up period of three months. Group 1 was open procedure group and Group 2 was endoscopic procedure group. All the patients were compared in term of post-operative parameters at follow up of 2 weeks, 1 month and 3 month.
Results: Average VAS score at post-operative follow- up at 3 month were 3.3 and 2.2 for open and endoscopic group respectively. Average six item score at post-operative follow- up at 3 month were 0.73 and 0.57 for open and endoscopic group respectively. Average number of days to return to daily activity was less in endoscopic group than open group.
Conclusion: Endoscopic carpel tunnel release operated patients showed better functional outcome compare to open carpel tunnel release.
