Simultaneous reconstruction in severe degloving injuries of the fingers.

Author information

Cattedra di Chirurgia Plastica dell'Università, Parma.


The reconstruction of degloved fingers often requires tissue coverage from a distant donor site, transferred to the defect by means of pedicle flaps. The authors propose three main donor areas, depending on the reparative needs of the hand: the contralateral upper limb, the abdomen, and the retroauricular-mastoid region. The reconstruction techniques described in this paper guarantee satisfactory morphological and functional results and are therefore preferred in immediate reconstruction of the fingers following degloving injuries.
