The objective of this study was to assess the clinical and electrophysiological changes before and after surgery in 44 patients who underwent surgical intervention due to the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Patients who were diagnosed with a slight, moderate, and severe idiopathic CTS were assessed clinically and by electrophysiological tests before (mean 2-4 weeks) and after surgery (at sixth month). Improvement in clinical parameters was achieved more significantly than electrophysiological recovery.
