Abstract

This chapter describes in detail the surgical steps for performing a dorsal wrist ganglion cyst excision. The approach allows for an operative alternative to unsuccessful conservative management for dorsal wrist ganglion cysts or cysts unamenable to simple aspiration. Indications, surgical steps, postoperative care, an operative dictation template, and suggested readings/references are included.
