Follow-up (months) 53.8 ± 20.98 50.3 ± 18.36 0.491
  1. Age, duration, and follow-up were analyzed using an independent t-test. Fisher’s tests were used to calculate the difference in the rates of gender, injured side, and recurrent ganglions. The preop VAS, Mayo, and DASH scores were analyzed using Mann-Whitney U tests
  2. GA General anesthesia technique, WALANT Wide-awake local anesthesia no tourniquet technique, VAS Visual analog scale, Mayo Modified Mayo wrist scores, DASH Disabilities of Arm, Shoulder and Hand Outcome Measure
