    Lack of voluntary active elbow extension inhibits many important functions in persons with tetraplegia. Biceps-to-triceps transfer can restore this function in selected patients. This article outlines the basic problem, indications and contraindications, surgical technique, and postoperative rehabilitation protocol for biceps-to-triceps transfer using the medial routing technique with suture anchoring of the biceps muscle tendon unit into the triceps aponeurosis and olecranon.
