Reconstruction Of Deformed Hand Trauma

The immediate measure was to reduce swelling. This was not with medicines but other more rapid and effective anti-oedema measures under direct supervision. Within days the swelling melted away.

Once flap is in place, the next step is to carry out tendon transfer for finger extension.
