Nerve Transfer for Thumb Flexion This video demonstrates Pre and postoperative motion of the left hand in a tetraplagegic patient following reconstruction of thumb and finger flexion. Finger flexion was reconstructed by transferring the brachialis muscle to the flexor digitorum profundus with the help of a tendon graft. The distal branch of the extensor carpi radialis brevis was transferred to the motor branch of the flexor pollicis longus.

The formation and propagation of a peroneal intraneural ganglion (the most common type of intraneural cyst) is illustrated. This video highlights the articular branch connection and the phasic nature of ascent (up the articular branch to the common peroneal nerve); cross-over within the shared epineurial sheath of the sciatic nerve; and descent (down the tibial nerve).
