dc.description.abstractLoss of arm and hand function is a devastating consequence of cervical spinal cord injury. Tendon transfer surgery has traditionally been used to restore key functions including elbow extension, wrist extension and grasp and pinch. The more recent development of nerve transfer surgery enables direct restoration of voluntary control of these functions. While both types of surgery are safe and effective, nerve transfer surgery results in a more open, flexible and natural hand, with more subtle control for a range of activities of daily living.en
