Primary Outcome Measures:
  • static 2-point discrimination test and the range of motion are used for evaluation of outcomes [ Time Frame: at least 4 months ]

Enrollment: 16
Study Start Date: May 2001
Study Completion Date: May 2008
Primary Completion Date: May 2006 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Procedure: The innervated sensory cross-finger flap
    The innervated sensory cross-finger flap is a modified method for repair fingertip degloving injury
Detailed Description:
Incidence of fingertip degloving injury is common and can result in functional morbidity. A cross-finger flap based on the dorsal branch artery (DBA) including sensory nerve is a useful reconstructive technique.In our modification, the innervated sensory flap is vascularized by the DBA, both its pedicle is narrow and its coverage is extended, the projecting tip of exposed distal phalanx of adjacent digits therefore can be wrapped.
