Deepithelialized pedicle flap placed subcutaneously for fingertip reconstruction

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Fingertip injuries are common, but treatment may produce misshapened, clubbed, and painful results. The technique described here has given consistently excellent results in fingertip coverage in 74 patients with 96 fingertip injuries from 1976 through 1986. In this technique deepithelialized pedicle flaps provide soft tissue coverage before skin closure.
