Original Abstract

It is possible to reconstruct the elbow motion in tetraplegic patients using the posterior portion of the deltoid muscle. In this surgery however, it is a problem to achieve a firm suture between the deltoid muscle and the tendon graft which extends the muscle and is sewn in order to compensate for the plegic musculus triceps brachii function. This study assesses two methods of attachment between muscle and free tendon graft from the biomechanical point of view.
