    Fahad, I am sorry that I did not see your message until just now. I am not an expert in tendon transfer. I think that the most commonly used muscle for tendon transfer is the brachioradialis. This way, when you cock the hand radially, it also closes your forefinger and thumb into tendodesis. But, somebody more experienced with such surgery should be advising you on this matter. Wise.
