Radial Tunnel Release

A radial tunnel release is done when symptoms persist despite conservative management. This surgery involves an incision over the dorsal forearm and dissection down to the level of nerve compression. The supinator muscle and other structures overlying the nerve are incised and the posterior interosseous nerve is decompressed. This should give the patient relief of their symptoms, and they will regain normal function of their arm in two to three weeks once the incision has fully healed.
