Abstract

First web space contracture causes significant morbidity and hence their release is important to make use of normal hand functions. First web space helps in improving the grasp. There are several methods of normalizing the 1st webspace. In this article we are describing a local flap that uses the spare tissue of the thumb polydactyly for recovering the defect created from the release of the first web contracture, thereby providing coverage with a tissue that has good vascularity and also giving sensation to the resurfaced part.
