Upper extremity tendon autograft harvest has many indications and techniques. Many harvest sites provide only 1 single autograft and/or require surgical set up of more extremities than the primary one of interest. In this report, we describe an easily reproducible, quick, and low-morbidity technique using both the wrist extensors - extensor carpi radialis longus and extensor carpi radialis brevis, from near their distal attachments to their musculotendinous junctions proximally - as a source of tendon autograft for a variety of applications.
