Motor replacement operations refer to the operations that aim to replace paretic muscles. For this purpose functional muscles are transfered or their tendons redirected ( so called tendon transfers). These operations are carried out when a damaged nerve cannot be repaired. In the case of a wrist-drop (after a radial nerve damage ) tendons from the inside of the forearm can be transpositioned in a way that the wrist is supported and held in its normal position. Similar reconstructive operations are also suitable for the legs (for example in the case of peroneal nerve damage). As a Department of Plastic Surgery with Handsurgery and Reconstructive Microsurgery we have a lot of experiences on brachial pelexus lesions and other lesions of peripheral nerves. Therefore, we are able to provide alternative (palliative) measures for all conditions of peripheral nerve injuries for functional reconstruction of the injured nerves.
