Palliative tendon transfer procedures for radial nerve palsy are continuing to evolve. This paper reports outcomes of 10 patients with isolated and traumatic radial nerve palsy underwent “minimal transfer”. All patients improved functionally and could attend their routine activities. The flexor carpi ulnaris and palmaris longus tendon transfer has some advantages in terms of simplicity, shorter operative time, less morbidity, better wrist and finger extension and thumb extension and abduction.
