Answer

Subcutaneous transposition is the most commonly used method of transposition. It may be the procedure of choice in athletes who throw and do not have muscular atrophy. These athletes may lose forearm strength from a submuscular transposition and a simple decompression may not provide adequate relief of symptoms.
