Abstract

Experience has emphasized the importance (1) of completely excising all cicatricial tissue from the site which is to receive the transplant; (2) of re-establishing complete intrinsic-muscle control of the proximal and distal joints of the finger; and (3) of preventing anterior subluxation by reconstructing the extensor mechanism and by splinting the finger in complete extension during the period of immobilization.
