A new operative technique: cubital tunnel decompression with endoscopic assistance


, : A new operative technique: cubital tunnel decompression with endoscopic assistance. Hand Clinics 11(1): 71-80

The final outcome of a surgical decompression of the ulnar nerve depends on the precise release of all potential entrapment points. Careful attention must be given to all anatomic structures around the ulnar nerve and elbow area to ensure adequate dissection and surgical accuracy. In the authors' new endoscopic technique, glass tubes have been specially designed to house an endoscope and guide a meniscus knife, allowing for the release of all involved structures up to 10 cm both proximally and distally through a 3-cm skin incision. The authors present their experience in a cadaver trial and with 26 patients with follow-up of at least 6 months.
