An unusual case of isolated serratus anterior paralysis is presented. The various muscle transplants for improvement of this syndrome are reviewed and a detailed illustrated discussion of a technique for the transplantation of the costosternal portion of the pectoralis major muscle is described. This transplant is the procedure of choice in an isolated serratus anterior paralysis.
