The authors demonstrated ultrasound-guided technique in treating carpal tunnel syndrome to avoid damaging the median nerve and adjacent soft tissue. Since the median nerve goes deeper at distal hamate level, distal approach may provide larger space for initial needle insertion. Under long-axial view, the whole stretch of median nerve could be visualized when the needle progressed proximally in the access of in-plane.
