Transfer of the Motor Branch of the Abductor Digiti Quinti for Thenar Muscle Reinnervation in High Median Nerve Injuries.

Abstract

PURPOSE In high median nerve repairs, thenar muscle reinnervation is impossible because of the long distances over which axons must regenerate. To overcome this obstacle, we propose transferring the abductor digiti quinti motor branch (ADQMB) to the thenar branch of the median nerve (TBMN). METHODS We used 10 embalmed hands for anatomical and histological… (More)
