Median (FCR/FDS) to Radial (PIN/ECRB) Nerve Transfer with Pronator Teres to ECRB Tendon Transfer 0 Mackinnon SE1 Yee A1 February 24, 2012Disclosure: No authors have a financial interest in any of the products, devices, or drugs mentioned in this production or publication.The median to radial nerve transfer is an available option for restoring radial nerve hand function following nerve injury. This nerve transfer specifically involves the transferring of two sets of nerves. That is, the flexor carpi radialis (FCR) to posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) and the flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS) to extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) nerve transfers. This patient had a radial nerve palsy following a proximal humeral fracture. In conjunction to this nerve transfer in this case, the pronator teres to ECRB tendon transfer was also performed to reinforce and provide function to wrist extension through ECRB using pronator teres.Keywords: tendon transferhand functionradial nervemedian nervewrist dropsynergistic transfernerve transfernerve injury You must login to view the full article and extended video on this page.
