Repair of incomplete simple syndactyly by a web flap on a subcutaneous tissue pedicle.

Author information

Hangzhou Plastic Surgery Hospital, People's Republic of China.


A new web flap on a subcutaneous tissue pedicle was developed to repair incomplete simple syndactyly. It was isolated from the top skin in syndactyly and transferred down into the depth of the web space to create a web commissure. With use of this technique, aesthetic appearance of the web and well-functioning fingers were gained. Moreover, this technique made full use of the original skin of the syndactyly, and a skin graft was not needed. We report here the operative technique, which presents another alternative for repair of incomplete simple syndactyly.
