Tendon transfers are used to restore balance and function to paralyzed, injured, or absent neuromuscular motor units. The goal is to improve the balance of a neurologically impaired hand. In the upper extremity, tendon transfers are most commonly used to restore function following injury to the radial, median, and ulnar nerves. We report the case of an Indian Border Security Force (BSF) jawan who had wrist drop following a bullet injury to the left upper arm.
