Brachialis-to-Extensor Carpi Radialis Longus Selective Nerve Transfer to Restore Wrist Extension in Tetraplegia: Case Report
The Journal of Hand Surgery, 08/01/2012
Fridén J et al. – The authors present a 36–year–old man with high–level tetraplegia treated 12 months after injury who regained active wrist extension after transfer of the brachialis muscle branch of the musculocutaneous nerve to the extensor carpi radialis longus muscle branch of the radial nerve. No functional deficit of elbow flexion occurred after reconstruction.
