Abstract

Reconstruction of congenital differences of the hand presents a surgical challenge. Microsurgical toe-to-hand transfer is becoming an accepted treatment for these difficult problems. These transfers can provide functionally useful and cosmetically acceptable digits in children with congenital absence of the thumb, fingers, or both. Currently, the success rate is routinely greater than 95%.
