Innervated full thickness grafts in distal finger amputations

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Innervated full thickness graft will be presented as an option to reconstruct a fingertip defect which might result in better sensibility than standard reconstruction using a full thickness graft without innervation. Also, anastomosing the nerve stumps can decrease the chance of developing neuroma.
