Fillet flap (finger)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter describes in detail the surgical steps for performing a fillet flap of a digit. Fillet flaps can be performed on essentially on any extremity and their appendages, and thus, this operative note may serve as a template/concept for improvisation to be applied as such. This procedure utilizes the “spare parts” approach for reconstruction and wound coverage. Indications, surgical steps, postoperative care, an operative dictation template, coding information and suggested readings/references are included.
