Abstract:   (832 Views)
The right hand of a 35-year-old man trapped in a roller machine and sustained an entire degloving injury of the right hand involving fingers, thumb and a part of palmar and dorsal surfaces of the hand. The denuded hand and fingers were covered with two anteriorly based random paired flaps, forming a hand sandwich, from the opposing surfaces of medial left arm and adjacent left lateral chest wall. The denuded thumb was covered with a separate pocket of paired random vis-à-vis flaps. Finally, the right hand was turned to a functional mitten hand with a 15x13 cm flap on the dorsal surface, 10x10 cm flap on the palm surface. The thumb’s covered surface with flaps was 7x 6 cm
