The dorsal homodigital island flaps is based on the dorsal branch of the digital artery, and is used for reconstruction of multiple finger defects.
Procedure: Soft tissue coverage
The dorsal homodigital island flaps are used for reconstruction of multiple finger defects
- static two-point discrimination [ Time Frame: postoperative 18-24 months ]The test points are at the center of the flap.Each area is tested 3 times with a Discriminator. We stopp at 4 mm as a limit of two-point discrimination and consider this normal.
- Cold intolerance of the injured finger [ Time Frame: Postoperative 18-24 months ]The cold intolerance of the injured finger was measured using the self-administered Cold Intolerance Severity Score questionnaire that was rated into mild, moderate, severe, and extreme.
