Abstract

In this article we set out to describe a simple and modified Sourmelis technique for tendon retrieval in zone I and II. In this modified technique, a long loop of nylon suture is used and hence there is no need for the stage 4 of Sourmelis technique. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate this modification.
