Several surgical techniques exist for restoring triceps function in tetraplegic patients. The goal is to establish a more synchronized, better controlled arm that allows increased self-sufficiency and further reconstructive surgery on the hand. To obtain the most secure fixation, adjust the tension, and allow early mobilization, the technique we prefer uses the central tendon of the triceps muscle and bony block fixation reinforced by the palmaris longus.
