- Summary A new surgical technique for correction of polysyndactyly with the
fifth toe fused with the fourth toe was devised. The technique consists of the
creation of a dorsal rectangular flap on the dorsum of the syndactyly web for
the new fourth web, making a medially based plantar rectangular flap on the
plantar surface of the fifth toe, and a sixth toe-tip-based rectangular hinge flap
to reconstruct the lateral side of the fourth toe and medial side of the new
fifth toe, respectively. All suture lines are intended to be located in the
transition of the plantar and dorsal surfaces of the web and digit. This
technique is characterised by accurate anatomic reconstruction, which produces
better aesthetic results with no wasting of any skin components.
