This tissue is different from normal tissue by necessity because it has to hold to areas of normal tissue together and prevent splitting open or tearing again. As years go by the unique patch work of scar tissue will be filled in with normal growth tissue that strengths and repairs the area that was severed. However, the web of scar tissue remains for the rest of one’s life.
For most areas of the body, scar tissue formation is not a big deal because the scar tissue is relatively small compare to the size of the body part being cut or the size of the organ being extracted.
However, with Carpal Tunnel Surgery, any scar tissue formation can create complications because the space is so tight and there are so many tendons, tendon sheaths, blood vessels, muscles, nerves, fascia tissue and epidermis packed into an already limited space with a lot of moving parts.
For instance the seven tendons that control the use of your fingers all run from the tips of your fingers and thumb, through the Carpal Tunnel and then attach to muscles in the forearm that allows your hands and fingers to move and work with dexterity, ease and beauty.
