Abstract

In this article we report a case of neglected hand burn with total loss of thumb with additional first web space and wrist contracture of the nondominant hand of a young female. Osteoplastic technique was applied for thumb reconstruction with additional fillet flap and posterior interosseous flap for first web space and thenar area. In this era of microsurgical reconstruction this simple and basic technique can still be useful in selected cases.
