We present refinements in the treatment of duplicated thumb. When applying the modified Bilhauts procedure including the nail, this design based on a lunula is useful to construct a natural looking nail in Wassel types 2 to 4. No bone fixation of each segment is also effective to produce an even transverse curvature of the reconstructed nail.
