Abstract

Both open and endoscopic methods for ulnar nerve decompression have been described. The purpose of this study is to compare the 6-month results of a minimal invasive open technique with an endoscopic technique. We treated 60 patients with unilateral ulnar neuropathy at the elbow, employing both techniques. Six months postoperative we found no differences in treatment effect on pain and disability scores between both groups, but both techniques resulted in an early postoperative relief of symptoms and good patient satisfaction.
