Abstract

In the forearm, vital and expendable functions have been identified, and tendon transfers use these conventions to maximize function and minimize disability. Using similar concepts, distal nerve transfers offer a reconstruction that often is superior to reconstruction accomplished by traditional grafting. The authors present nerve transfer options for restoring motor and sensory deficits within each nerve distribution on the forearm and hand.
