Description

Degloving injury is serious injuries that define as an extensive section of skin is completely torn off the underlying tissue, severing its blood supply. Their surgical treatment is very difficult and challenge for the reconstructive surgeon, and consist in covering with good quality, pliable and sensate skin. We present a case with degloving injury of fingers, of which repair with the abdominal tunnelsations flap. Various reconstructive procedures have been adopted in the past years, but still with poor results. The application of this flap, a 1-flap solution, is reliable and convenient in the treatment of degloving fingers.
