Finger Avulsion Injury - Outcome

Tim was throwing a set of keys over a palicade fence when his right ring finger was avulsed. Unfortunately the finger had to be amputated. He sustained a ring avulsion injury of his right ring finger. A replantation attempt failed, the use of a dorsal hand flap reconstruction allowed the maximum length of the finger to be spared including the first joint of the finger (as opposed to a lower amputation level) which has allowed Tim a better grasp function of the hand. Reconstruction of amputated digits allows for a greater functional improvement. Tim regained full functional use of his hand and is satisfied with the outcome.
