Abduction is frequently inadequate, and adduction is quite weak. Esthetically the thumb has a slender aspect, the web fold is absent, and the commissure looks more like a cleft. We tried to prioritize the issues to propose some technical modifications for improvement of function and appearance.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/76891||ISSN:||1089-3393||DOI:||10.1097/01.bth.0000164509.88340.b7||Source:||Techniques in Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery [ISSN 1089-3393], v. 9 (2), p. 96-104, 2005|
