Abstract

A variety of flaps have been described to treat longitudinal soft tissue defects located on the dorsal aspect of the fingers. We report 13 dorsal soft tissue defects in four patients in which unipedicle laterodigital transposition flaps were used for reconstruction. This flap is especially useful for the reconstruction of long and narrow defects located on the dorsal region of the fingers in multi-digit injuries.
