While trigger digit is a clinical disorder in which locking of the finger is involved. These disorders can coexist in the same hand, or one disorder can generate other disorder, one being the cause for the generation of others. Carpal tunnel release and trigger finger together are one of the most common conditions that are treated by a hand surgeon. One disorder can be a cause for the manifestation of others, and therefore there is a significant occurrence rate of both. A study was conducted to understand how one disorder results in the manifestation of the other and trigger digit occurrence after carpal tunnel release was examined in the retrospective study. The results suggested that carpal tunnel release surgery is a risk factor for the onset of a trigger finger. Both Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and trigger finger (TF) can occur others, but one syndrome will be more prominent. After the operation of CTS, the chances of trigger finger are highly increased.
