Finger Reconstruction


For reconstruction of amputated fingers we concentrated to use remained part of fingers, so osteotomy should be done on remained bone for lengthening .It’s obvious we don’t make finger joints , so at joint sites we make an angle (already defined for each joint) to reproduce as normal appearance and function as possible .

The most important disadvantage of finger regrowing procedure is taking long time.

So before coming to start ,it should be noted carefully .

For each 2 cm lengthening of finger may take at least 5-6 month with wearing illizarov frame .

So sever amputation with cutting near base of finger , patient may need four lengthening operation with 6 months intervals.
