Osteocutaneous flaps for thumb and digit reconstruction. In unique situations.
Osteocutaneous flaps from the foot are being utilized more for thumb and digit reconstruction. We have presented a few unique situations in which these flaps are beneficial. Not all patients with deformities similar to those described in this presentation should have these reconstructive procedures. The patient must understand the risks of donor site morbidity and possible complications. However, the advantages of this technique are that only one surgical procedure is necessary, the hospitalization is short, the cosmetic result is good, and the functional restoration is satisfactory.
