Long Term Outcomes Following Radial Polydactyly Reconstruction
External Resource
J Hand Surg Am. 2014;39(8):1549-15
Dr. Stutz and colleagues present long term follow-up on 43 reconstructed thumbs in 41 patients with radial polydactyly. They report good results in terms of strength, function, and cosmesis but demonstrate that the revision surgery rate increases over time as mild imbalances in alignment and soft tissue tension may result in worsening Z-deformity with growth.

Thumb Polydactyly
Video Theater - 2015 ASSH Annual Meeting
Zig-zag deformity can be corrected using soft tissue by reconstructing the collateral ligament and correcting abnormal tendon structures, and osteotomy may be added if correction cannot be achieved by using only these procedures. The use of a neurovascular bundle island flap is useful for augmenting the soft tissue of the preserved thumb, as it allows for transplanting an appropriate amount of tissue to the site to be augmented.
