How does carpal tunnel release using ultrasound guidance differ from other carpal tunnel release techniques?

More traditional forms of carpal tunnel release either involve an open incision or the use of an endoscope inserted through an incision in order to see where to operate.

Carpal tunnel release performed under the guidance of ultrasound uses an external means of determining where to operate, and a new instrument called the SX-One MicroKnife® is placed through a small incision to perform the release.
