Several surgical procedures are available for the relief of symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, and each of them has their pros and cons. This paper was planned and executed to demonstrate a novel way to fracture transverse carpal ligament by the thread looping method, which does not use ultrasonography. On ten hands of ten patients, the novel invention of looped threaded carpal tunnel release was carried out. After surgery, no patients developed pillar pain or scar pain.

Background: The authors conducted a prospective, multi-centre survey to determine the effects of carpal tunnel closure on Two-Point Discrimination, Quick Disabilities of Arm, Shoulder, and Hand Score, as well as Distal Motor Latency. The secondary objectives of the investigation were to determine whether the postoperative outcomes were different at the 6-month and 1-year follow-up, and if there was a difference in outcomes based on the preoperative severity of carpal tunnel syndrome. Methods: At five hospitals over a 2-year period, a total of 205 hands in 171 patients underwent CTR at five hospitals. Patients were divided into two groups,'mild' and'severe' based on pre-operative DL results. The change in pre-operative and post-operative 2-PD and Q-DASH values was also compared between the two groups''mild' and'severe' groups, as well as the'severe' groups. Conclusions: CTR is an effective therapy for patients with CTS with substantial improvement in all three outcome measures.
