Paralysis of the first dorsal interosseous muscle after external fixation of a distal radial fracture treated by transfer of the extensor indicis proprius tendon

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We describe a patient in whom the motor branch to the first dorsal interosseous muscle was injured by the pins of an fixator used to treat an unstable fracture of the distal radius. She was successfully treated by extensor indicis proprius transfer to the base of the proximal phalanx of the index finger.
