In conclusion, ultrasound-guided PDI with 4 ml of 5% dextrose provided better efficacy than with 1 and 2 ml based on symptom relief and functional improvement for CTS at the 1st, 4th, and 12th week post-injection, with no reports of severe adverse effects. There was no significant difference between the three groups at the 24th-week post-injection follow-up.Clinical Trial Registration:www.ClinicalTrials.gov, identifier NCT03598322.

CONCLUSIONS/INTERPRETATION: This is the first national study of patient-reported injuries after hand surgery treatment in Norway. The proportion of accepted claims is similar to that seen for orthopaedics. Acceptance levels were, however, higher for hand trauma cases than for disorders treated electively.
