The treatment objective in the five-finger hand is to create an opposable thumb with two phalanges and a first web space having a normal appearance. We report three cases of pollicization of the most radial finger in two patients evaluated by the Percival Score. Currently, the treatment of reference of five-finger hand is the pollicization of the most radial finger. We present a particular technical enhancement, which is the adaptation to a shorter osseous skeleton and the utilization of extrinsic or intrinsic motors present in the radial side of the hand.
