Central polydactyly: an alternative method of treatment

Cover Page

Abstract


Polydactyly is a rare congenital malformationcharacterized by an increase in the number of segments of hand ray. Central polydactyly is much rarerthan other types of polydactyly and is characterizedby a doubling of the segments of the second, thirdand fourth fingers. The main methods of surgicaltreatment of central polydactyly consist in the resection of additional segments and removal of the existing union. Often, the result of this treatment is the development of secondary deformities, leading to unsatisfactory results. The article describes the clinical example of microsurgical reconstruction of the patient’s hand with central polydactyly of both hands and presentation of long-term outcome.
