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.
