There is an article in this week’s JHS(Eur) by a senior author about his experience with tendon transfers. He believes that tendon transfers are the gold standard and that there needs to be more evidence for the benefit of nerve transfers.
Radial nerve has often surprised me with its recovery. However, doing an early tendon transfer should be okay as long as we do it end to side.
Have no experience in nerve transfers for high radial nerve injuries.
Dom, what has your results been?
