Figure 3: Intraoperative photographs. (a and b) A cystic lesion is encapsulating the ulnar nerve in the distal third of the arm (the normal ulnar nerve cranially and caudally is held in tapes). (c) The cyst wall is being removed along with the epineurium. (d) The thickened nerve at the site of the cyst after decompression is being noted with capillary bleeding. (e) The outer cyst wall and the inner cyst wall blending with the epineurium can be clearly noted. (f) After complete microsurgical removal, the ulnar nerve in its entire length is well decompressed
