There are eight small carpal bones that form the wrist. The bones are arranged in two rows, a proximal row and a distal row. They are joined together by ligaments and are so arranged that their anterior surface is deeply concave. Stretching across the concavity between the lateral two and the medial two carpal bones is a strong fibrous sheet called flexor retinaculum. This converts the concavity into a tunnel – the Carpal Tunnel.
