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.

Both the LHBT tenotomy and the tenodesis present comparable postoperative clinical examination results, regardless of the cosmetic outcome, that is, potential risk of muscle belly distalization in terms of "Popeyes sign." Generally, postoperative clinical examinations assess the gross manual muscle function and therefore lack objectivity and reliability.
