[Reconstruction of the first interdigital commissure with distal flaps]

Chir Organi Mov. 1989 Jan-Jun;74(1-2):69-73.
[Article in Italian]


Authors report some examples of distant flaps which they judge excellent in first web reconstruction following severe posttraumatic skin retraction. The utilization of these procedures is suggested in those cases, particularly if complicated by skin loss, which need fairly large amount of skin with thin subcutaneous tissue like the one of the three described flaps.
