Toe-to-hand transfer is a well established procedure and is one of the best ways of reconstructing the missing fingers or parts of fingers. In congenital deformities of fingers and hands such as absence of digits, second toe transfer may create the grip function and is superior to all other procedures. We present three cases of four second toe transfer to reconstruct long finger defects after congenital malformations of the long fingers. The aim of this paper is to discuss some aspects of the procedure and to evaluate achieved results. All our four patients were operated on when they were over 10 years of age.
