Abstract: In toe desyndactyly, a dorsal or plantar commissural flap, combined with skin grafts, will ensure an acceptable result. However, the parallel unsightly scars in the longitudinal direction on the dorsum of the toes will sometimes fail to satisfy the patient's and/or the parents' aesthetic expectations. To address this issue, we developed a technique using a transversely oriented transposition flap for web reconstruction, which can spare the dorsal interdigital skin maximally to shift the dorsal scars plantarly such that they become inconspicuous. The design of the flap is simple and uncomplicated surgically. Moreover, the donor site morbidity is minimal, owing to the good healing potential of the transverse scars. This technique could be an alternative in web reconstruction of toe desyndactyly, especially in cases with high cosmetic priority.
