German term or phrase: CTS
Spaltung der Flexorenhaube bei CTS - CTS is presumably the illness and Spaltung der Flexorenhaube is the procedure performed to correct it. What does CTS stand for? And is "division of the tegmentum of the flexors" any good for the rest?

CTS - carpal tunnel syndrome
Explanation:
According to Pschyrembel, Klin.-therapeutisches WB, the only illness that is abbreviated CTS is carpal tunnel syndrome. See if that fits in with your context.

As for the "rest", I would not use the word division for Spaltung, rather s.th. like lancing or incision (if this is a surgical procedure).
Hope this helps

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome


Explanation:
This is a problem of the wrist and hand involving pain, numbness and tingling. A quick search revealed 1000s of sites including some refs to an operation called Karpaldachspaltung or Spaltung des Retinaculum flexorum and translated as carpal tunnel release (among the Springer link sites). Can be done traditionally or using endoscopy. No time to search further but this looks like the right track,
