PMID: 32944414.


With the 1-portal technique for endoscopic carpal tunnel release, the incision is less tender and patients have less postoperative need for analgesics, and return to activities of daily living and work seems to be earlier. The literature also confirms an earlier return to work. Surgical time can be shorter as less time is spent in making and closing the incision.
