Endoscopic DeQuervain’s Release
There are three reasons to consider an endoscopic approach to
ﬁrst dorsal compartment release rather than a traditional open
release. First, the results of open release, when viewed critically,
still have a number of complications. Second, the incisions for
an endoscopic release are outside the area of maximal sensi-
tivity. Third, we hypothesize that an endoscopic release may
allow for a localized neurectomy.
