Thumb reconstruction by pedicled transfer of the second toe.

Abstract

Microsurgery and free tissue transfer play a vital role in the modern practice of reconstructive surgery. Prior to the advent of microsurgical free tissue transfer pedicle flaps were the workhorse of a reconstructive surgeon. We report a case of thumb reconstruction by pedicled transfer of the second toe with functional and aesthetic outcome. This case was performed in Pakistan where microsurgical facilities were not available.
