Restoration of wrist extension after paralysis.


Loss of active extension of the wrist is a major functional handicap for the affected patient. Restoration of wrist extension, primarily accomplished via tendon transfers, is a fundamental part of surgical treatment after paralysis. The anatomy and physiology of the wrist, the clinical aspects, the history, and restorative treatment of wrist extension after paralysis are discussed.
