Long-term results after vascularized joint transfer for finger joint reconstruction
Vascularized complete joint transfer from the finger or the second toe offers the unique possibility to reconstruct a joint defect at the thumb or fingers using autologous tissue, which fully preserves its growth potential. Whenever possible the "tissue-bank-concept" according to CHASE should be applied in finger joint reconstruction using a vascularized joint graft from either an amputated or a worthless digit.
