A modification of the homodigital lateral V-Y advancement flaps described by Segmüller in 1976 for the treatment of fingertip injuries is described. The extended flap used in this series makes this flap more versatile in the treatment of injuries with considerable soft-tissue loss from the volar aspect of the fingertip. The Segmüller flap technique, its applications, and the results of 100 flaps are reported and discussed.
