Flexor carpi ulnaris (FCU) transfer to the extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) and/or the extensor carpi radialis longus (ECRL) has been commonly used to provide wrist extension. The ability of this wrist extension transfer to also provide forearm supination has been inferred but not formally investigated. This laboratory study investigated the forearm supination effect of FCU transfer to the ECRB and to the ECRL in a cadaveric model. Two vectors of pull were investigated: freeing either the… CONTINUE READING
