Abstract

Restoration of thumb opposition in the setting of peripheral nerve or brachial plexus injury is critical to upper limb function. When commonly utilized opposition donors are unavailable for clinical use, the pronator teres represents a good and reliable tendon for restoration of thumb opposition. Here we describe our rational and technique for pronator teres opposition transfer using Guyon's canal as a pulley.
