A systematic approach to repair of syndactylism

B. W. Chang, E. F.S. Wilgis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An approach to the repair of syndactyly is presented whereby the web space is dissected in anatomically defined planes. This technique is preferred because it allows a reliable means of removing interdigital fibrofatty tissue while preserving the neurovascular bundles. Digital contour is improved and wound healing is promoted by less skin tension due to removal of the fibrofatty tissue.
