Carpal Tunnel

The carpal tunnel (canalis carpi) is a part of the wrist where veins, nerves, and tendons pass from the forearm to the palm. It is an osteofibrous (bone-and-ligament) passage formed between the carpal (wrist) bones on one side and a tough transverse ligament (the retinaculum flexorum) on the other.
