The Carpal Clip is an
endoscopic carpal tunnel release.
Encompassess ligament above and below
Provides superior visualization
The Carpal Clip has two arms that slide above and below the ligament to firmly grasp and hold the device in place preventing unwanted fatty tissue infiltration. This allows for optimal visualization both above and below the ligament to allow for safe transection.
One device is used for either a right or left carpal tunnel release or both for bilateral cases.
Because the device grasps and holds the ligament, the surgeons hands are freed from holding the device in place and can be used to manipulate instruments.
The device allows for a standard endoscope (ubiquitously present at all hospitals) up to 4mm in diameter.
The Carpal Clip anterograde knife rides within the designated knife slot and is guided by the scope for directional use making carpal ligament transection accurate.
