Abstract: The authors describe a new nap to enlarge or create a first web in patients with congenital deficiencies of the hand. This lozenge-shaped flap is harvested from the dorsoradial aspect of the index finger based on a narrow proximal skin bridge protecting its axial vascularization. A dorsal skin graft of the donor site is avoided by closure using a rhomboid flap. Procedures in 16 patients ri ere performed and reviewed; the only complication was insertion of a small split-thickness graft in five patients to avoid tension at the metacarpophalangeal joint level. The flap lengthened the web fold an average of 3.2 cm without ''pseudolengthening" the thumb.
