Recurrent Syndactyly

This 8 year old male was surgically treated with syndactyly reconstruction utilizing skin grafts 6 years ago (in his hometown).  He did well although the skin between the fingers gradually crept distally towards the fingertips.  The skin growth limited the spread of the fingers.

He and his family requested surgical reconstruction.  Hoping to avoid the use of skin grafts, we utilized a "Box Flap" technique which provided a satisfactory outcome.  These photographs are pictures from the operating room.
