The usefulness of carpal tunnel pressures measurement during surgery of carpal tunnel syndrome is documented by the authors. 31 patients underwent endoscopic uniportal approach, the pressure in different positions (neutral position, flexion and extension in wrist, grip of the fingers) and in different levels (distal forearm, proximal, central and distal part of carpal tunnel, palm) was measured. The significant drop of pressure was observed after dissection of ligament in all levels. The results are presented in the form of several graphs.
