During open carpal tunnel release surgery, the transverse carpal ligament is cut, which releases pressure on the median nerve and relieves the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. An incision is made at the base of the palm of the hand which allows the doctor to see the transverse carpal ligament. After the ligament is cut and the nerve decompressed, the skin is closed with stitches. The gap where the ligament was cut is left alone and eventually fills with scar tissue.
