Muscle atrophy: Wasting of muscle tissue, often the result of disuse secondary to interference with its motor innervation. DISCUSSION The carpal tunnel is formed posteriorly by the concave surfaces of the carpal bones (see Case 3 for their anatomic arrangement). The anterior boundary of the tunnel is formed by a thickening of the deep fascia, the flexor retinaculum (transverse carpal ligament). The flexor retinaculum is attached laterally to the tubercles of the scaphoid and trapezium and medially to the pisiform and hook of the hamate.
