The Endotrac™ System for Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release
New advances change treatment therapies and associated medical instruments frequently. As the Brown Procedure and other therapies were developed by Michael G. Brown, MD (retired), a variety of surgical instruments were created to support these procedures and have proven themselves in surgical procedures for many years.
For example, the Endotrac™ System has been proven in thousands of cases involving the surgical treatment of CTS. It includes an obturator, slotted cannula, synovial elevator, ligament probe, ligament rasp, blade handle, two retractors, and sterilizable tray. The Endotrac™ System is designed to be used with a standard 4mm, 30° scope.
