Abstract

Deformities of the spastic upper limb result frequently from the association of spasticity, muscle contracture and muscle imbalance between strong spastic muscles and weak non-spastic muscles. This study was designed to evaluate the feasibility of combining selective neurectomy of the usual spastic and strong muscles together with transfer of their motor nerves to the usual weak muscles, to improve wrist and fingers motion while decreasing spasticity.
