UltraGuideCTR is a surgical device used to perform carpal tunnel release (CTR). CTR is used to treat carpal tunnel syndrome by dividing the transverse carpal ligament to relieve pressure on the median nerve. UltraGuideCTR can be used with or without ultrasound guidance. When used with ultrasound guidance, the procedure requires a small wrist incision.

UltraGuideCTR is inserted through a small incision over the proximal carpal tunnel region. Throughout the procedure, the transverse carpal ligament and relevant anatomic structures are visualized directly, in real-time, with ultrasound imaging.

The majority of patients return to normal activities within 24 to 48 hours, and all patients return to preprocedural activities by 7 days postoperatively. Many patients have reported relief of pain and numbness as early as the night of the procedure.
