Restoration of the flexor digitorum profundus in the presence of a normal sublimis by a free tendon graft is justifiable in selected cases.

The sublimis tendon must not be removed.

As the disability caused by lack of profundus action is comparatively slight and can be treated in other ways, tendon replacement should only be undertaken by surgeons of experience.
