Abstract

Abstract A prospective study has been performed on 47 wrists treated by surgical decompression for carpal tunnel syndrome. In all cases where there was symptomatic relief within the first 24 hours postoperatively, a good or excellent outcome was obtained when the patients were reviewed six weeks after surgery. If subjective improvement was not obtained by 24 hours, a good outcome was still possible but a poor outcome became more likely.
