Improving the extensor lag and range of motion following free vascularized joint transfer to the proximal interphalangeal joint: Part 2. A clinical series.


BACKGROUND Free vascularized joint transfer for reconstructing the posttraumatic proximal interphalangeal joint has enjoyed limited popularity because of the low range of motion typically achieved after transfer. One of the commonest complaints is the significant extensor lag. Part 2 of this two-part study is focused on the clinical outcomes following a… (More)
