STUDY DESIGN Retrospective Cohort INTRODUCTION Important outcomes of polliciation to treat thumb hypoplasia/aplasia include strength, function, dexterity, and quality of life. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY To evaluate outcomes and examine predictors of outcome after early childhood pollicization. METHODS 8 children (10 hands) were evaluated 3-15 years after(More)
Dexterity after finger pollicization (reconstruction to thumb) is critical to functional outcomes. While most tests of hand function evaluate a combination of strength, coordination, and motor control, the Strength-Dexterity (S-D) paradigm focuses on the dynamic control of fingertip forces. We evaluated 10 pollicized and 5 non-pollicized hands from 8(More)
