Abstract

The hand is an intricate structure with complex anatomy. Defects in soft tissues of the hand are created after trauma or surgery. When contemplating reconstruction, the important aspects to analyze include the defect size, location, etiology of defect, patient demographics, occupation, and overall health status. Surgical options for hand reconstruction include primary closure, application of dermal regeneration template, skin grafts, flaps, and free tissue transfer.
