Carpal tunnel is the most common peripheral compressive neuropathy. Nonoperative management may provide temporary alleviation of symptoms, but in most cases surgical decompression is warranted. There are a multitude of approaches ranging from open release under general anesthesia to wide awake in-office endoscopic carpal tunnel release. The present article describes the technical considerations for the single incision, antegrade approach to endoscopic carpal tunnel release using the SEGWay system and technique.

Conclusions: Our study suggests that a knowledge test focused on drawing and labeling structures given to surgical residents is a valid, nontraditional method for assessing resident knowledge. Such a quiz would offer programs an alternative method for regularly evaluating residents aside from in-service questions, in order to identify residents who may need targeted training for the in-service exam and to inform teaching plans. Additionally, residents could use quiz feedback to guide study efforts and prime conference-related learning.

Gabapentinoids are commonly prescribed for the treatment of neuropathic pain but are not recommended for the primary treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). We sought (1) to investigate the preoperative use of gabapentinoids for the treatment of CTS and (2) to determine whether preoperative exposure is associated with persistent gabapentinoid and opioid use after carpal tunnel release.
