A clinical study of thread carpal tunnel release with a newly developed thread: A retrospective pilot study

Introduction Comparing to an open and endoscopic procedure, thread carpal tunnel release, ultrasound-guided transverse carpal ligament transection procedure using needle and thread, has been shown to be a safe and efficient method for carpal tunnel release. This pilot study was done to determine the safety of TCTR with Smartwire-01 relative to the commercial thread in clinical settings. Methods A total of 22 TCTR procedures have been performed on 19 patients by one physiatrist during a 42-month course. Electromyography based diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome was established as part of standard medical diagnostic criteria. Both pain and functional ability were shown by the TCTR thread's newly developed thread, which showed significant improvements for both pain and functional ability. Conclusions The research shows that, although our newly developed thread is safe and effective as the commercial thread in TCTR, we should therefore recommend a randomize controlled trial with above methodology.
