TENODESIS: A. Passive insufficiency of finger extensors occurs when the wrist is flexed, causing the fingers to extend. B. Passive insufficiency of the finger flexors occurs when the wrist is extended, causing the fingers to flex.

tenodesis

(ten-ŏ-dē′sĭs) [Gr. tenon, tendon, + desis, a binding]
1. Surgical fixation of a tendon. Usually a tendon is transferred from its initial point of origin to a new origin in order to restore muscle balance to a joint, to restore lost function, or to increase active power of joint motion.
2. Flexing of the fingers through tendon action of the extrinsic finger flexor muscles when they are stretched across the wrist joint during wrist extension. This mechanism is used for functional grip in the quadriplegic individual when paralysis is due to loss below the sixth cervical vertebra.
