Abstract

Recommendations for the surgical treatment of clinodactyly have centered on techniques of osteotomy with or without bone grafting. However, the limiting factor to the correction may be tension in the soft tissues. A new technique to correct clinodactyly is described utilising an opening wedge osteotomy and bone grafting plus a bipedicled neurovascular step-advancement flap to correct the soft tissue deficiency. The procedure has been performed in five cases.
