Abstract

The supercharge end-to-side anterior interosseous to ulnar motor nerve transfer has gained popularity over the past decade as a method of augmenting intrinsic muscle reinnervation in patients with acute neurotmetic ulnar nerve injuries. Controversy remains regarding its efficacy and appropriate clinical indications in cubital tunnel syndrome, where the timing of onset of axonal loss is less clear. The authors present guidelines for patient selection, surgical technique, and postoperative rehabilitation based on their clinical experience with the technique in this patient population. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE:: Therapeutic, V.
