A median and ulnar nerve block was administered for endoscopic carpal tunnel release. Three (14.2%) of 21 patients required further anesthesia with local anesthetic agents and sedation. No solution ran back to the surgical site. This technique is rapid and reliable, and it seems to be suitable for outpatient surgery.
