This presentation discusses carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and median neuropathy in the context of compression neuropathies. In particular, this presentation details the specific nuances for (1) an open carpal tunnel release, (2) revision carpal tunnel surgery, and (3) decompression of the median nerve in the forearm. Patients that fail the primary carpal tunnel release and require secondary surgery, present with either persistent, recurrent, or new symptoms. This classification for revision surgery is discussed to indicate the nature of the patient’s problem and define the appropriate management. Additionally, the technical nuances for decompression of the median nerve in the forearm are presented.
