The provider carries out extensor tendon repair with a free graft, when one or more tendons in a patient’s hand has a laceration or rupture, leading to loss of normal hand movements. When the provider repairs extensor tendons within seven days of injury it’s a primary repair. If the provider repairs the tendons more than seven days after the injury and not immediately then it’s known as a secondary repair.
