Abstract

Distal finger amputations could be responsible for prolonged time off work and disability. Although delayed healing is the simplest method, a deep defect with exposed skeleton or tendon is an indication for a flap to provide cover with good padding and discrimination. Local flaps are the first choice and selection is based on a number of parameters, the most important of which is the real possibility of advancement. Although V-Y flaps are sufficient to cover a guillotine amputation, a very large defect requires more sophisticated techniques like such as two-pedicle or single-pedicled island flaps.
