Elbow extension tendon transfer

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

At the First and Second International Conferences on surgical rehabilitation of the upper limb in tetraplegia,17,18 the consensus among surgeons was that, for the tetraplegia patient with paralysis of elbow extension, the first and "fundamental intervention" for reconstruction of the limb is tendon transfer for elbow extension. This article describes the posterior deltoid to triceps transfer, which has been used extensively over the last 30 years, and the medially routed biceps to triceps transfer, which has been described more recently.
