Reconstructive Surgery on Fingers of Hand Degloved in Accident

An Indian man in his 30’s suffered severe hand trauma that left his thumb, index, middle and ring fingers degloved. Little finger on that hand was not degloved, but was also injured. Unfortunately I do not have any info on how exactly he was injured.

After debridement (surgical removal of unsalvageable tissue), the surgeons covered degloved fingers with combined hypogastric and groin flaps, using the hypogastric artery as a primary blood supply vessel. This turned the patient’s hand into what is known as Syndactyly – fingers joined together by soft tissue, similar to what can be observed in koalas who have their second and third digits of their hind legs fused. Syndactyly was later surgically separated (not shown in photos).

  1. Cool! I *LOVE* doing reconstructive sx! Lots of times it is on a dog with a torn ear from a fight or being hit by a car. That causes the most deglovings. But there are also the yahoos who shoot a dog or cat in the leg or foot.

    Fun surgery to do and very satisfying to see them progress and recover form, function amd looks great too.

    I have loads of reconstructive sx pics and nice tumors after removal … somewhere… Seen lots and done lots since 1987!

  2. I just want to say that I’m so glad I’ve joined this community! I’ve been lurking for a while, but I figured Cinco de Mayo was as good a time as any to pop my “BG” cherry. ๐Ÿ™‚
