A modification of the great-toe transfer for thumb reconstruction



A modification of the great-toe transfer for thumb reconstruction



Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery 82(3): 535-538



A modification of the great-toe-to-thumb transfer is presented, which includes sculpting the transferred toe with removal of soft-tissue pulp and bone from the lateral side of the toe. This modification provides the aesthetic advantages of the wrap-around flap while avoiding problems of bone graft resorption, pulp mobility, and a very difficult dissection. Function in our three patients has been excellent.
