Tendon Transfer for Irreversible Radial Nerve Palsy, Does it Help?Retrospective Cohort From Level-1 Trauma Center.

Summary

Radial nerve palsy is associated with serious disability jeopardizing the grasp and power grip accountable to the loss of thumb and fingers extension and loss of active wrist extension respectively. There are three aims in the treatment of radial nerve palsy which comprise the restoration of thumb extension and abduction, finger extension and restoration of wrist extension. In this study we measured the functional outcome after tendon transfer for radial nerve palsy aimed to restore the wrist extension, finger extension and thumb extension/abduction. Investigators' objective was to assess the functional outcome after tendon transfer surgery for radial nerve palsy.

Description

Radial nerve palsy is associated with serious disability jeopardizing the grasp and power grip accountable to the loss of thumb and fingers extension and loss of active wrist extension respectively. There are three aims in the treatment of radial nerve palsy which comprise the restoration of thumb extension and abduction, finger extension and restoration of wrist extension. In this study we measured the functional outcome after tendon transfer for radial nerve palsy aimed to restore the wrist extension, finger extension and thumb extension/abduction. Investigators' objective was to assess the functional outcome after tendon transfer surgery for radial nerve palsy. So investigators conducted a retrospective study at Aga Khan University Hospital Karachi comprising records of patients operated for irreversible high radial nerve palsy. Investigators concluded that tendon transfer surgery for radial nerve palsy provides excellent results to restore the lost function and therefore must be considered for patients with no signs of recovery after the nerve repair.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical procedure by which a tendon is incised at its insertion and placed at an anatomical site distant from the original insertion. The tendon remains attached at the point of origin and takes over the function of a muscle inactivated by trauma or disease.

Inflammation of the synovial lining of a tendon sheath. Causes include trauma, tendon stress, bacterial disease (gonorrhea, tuberculosis), rheumatic disease, and gout. Common sites are the hand, wrist, shoulder capsule, hip capsule, hamstring muscles, and Achilles tendon. The tendon sheaths become inflamed and painful, and accumulate fluid. Joint mobility is usually reduced.

Disease involving the RADIAL NERVE. Clinical features include weakness of elbow extension, elbow flexion, supination of the forearm, wrist and finger extension, and thumb abduction. Sensation may be impaired over regions of the dorsal forearm. Common sites of compression or traumatic injury include the AXILLA and radial groove of the HUMERUS.

A procedure to surgically correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS by cutting radial slits into the CORNEA to change its refractive properties.

A band of fibrous tissue that attaches the apex of the PATELLA to the lower part of the tubercle of the TIBIA. The ligament is actually the caudal continuation of the common tendon of the QUADRICEPS FEMORIS. The patella is embedded in that tendon. As such, the patellar ligament can be thought of as connecting the quadriceps femoris tendon to the tibia, and therefore it is sometimes called the patellar tendon.
