The Effect of Flexor Carpi Ulnaris Pulley Design on Tendon Gliding Resistance After Flexor Digitorum Superficialis Tendon Transfer for Opposition transfer.

Nicole A Zelenski, Chung-Chen Hsu, Chunfeng Zhao, Peter C Amadio, Kai-Nan An, Steven L Moran,

The flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS) tendon transfer can be used to restore opposition of the thumb. Several pulley designs have been proposed for this transfer. Gliding resistance is considered to be an important factor influencing the efficiency of the pulley design. Our purpose was to compare the gliding resistance among ... Read more >>
