Restorative tendon transfer in upper limb palsy should be regarded as an important tool in hand surgery. An adequate planning and patient selection must be required, as well as several techniques can be used. Particularly, associated articular lesions must be detected and cured in the same time. Wrist extension palsies should be treated surgically with PT or LS transfer, whereas flexion pabies can be corrected with opportune balance in movements. Finger palsies can be treated with Zancolli's methods, including MP plasties and "lazos". Thumb pabies can be considered for extensor muscles transposition or reflexionplasties.
