The flexor retinaculum (also called the transverse carpal ligament and the anterior annular ligament) is a ligament in the hand that stretches over the carpal bones in the wrist. The gap between the carpal bones and the flexor retinaculum is called the carpal tunnel. There is a similar structure in the foot of the same name.
