외상성 수지 절단에서 인지 재건을 위한 제 2 족지이식
Purpose : To assess the clinical results of second toe-to-finger transfer in traumatic amputated index finger.
Materials and Methods : For the clinical evaluation, we have analyzed 12 patients with ROM of finger joints, pinch power, static two point discrimination, life functional assessment, and patient’s satisfaction.
Results : In genral ROM was 54.4° at MP joint, 17° at PIP joint and 6.7° at DIP joint. Pinch power was good in 3 cases, fair in 7 cases, and poor in 2 cases. Daily life activity and patient’s acceptance were satisfactory.
Conclusion : Although transfered toe function may be poorer than normal finger, the hand was restored to a useful, sensate and versatile functional unit.
Key Words: Amputated finger, Toe-to-finger transfer
