Tendon Transfer

    Default Tendon Transfer

    Patient has a chronic flexor digitorum profundus laceration in zone 1.

    The doctor repaired the laceration by transferring the flexor digitorum superficialis and augmenting the repair by harvesting the palmaris longus and attaching it to the FDS in a Pulvertaft weave. The closest I can come to this is 26372 but that does not include the transfer of the FDS to the FDP. Opinions would be appreciated.
