Desyndactylization of the first and second toes using full-thickness autologous skin graft from the ankle [Case Report]

Giorgini, Renato J; Rostkowski, Tomasz; Japour, Christopher
We present a unique case of congenital bilateral simple syndactyly of the first and second toes that was surgically treated using a full-thickness skin graft harvested from the same foot at the lateral aspect of the ankle. This surgical approach eliminates the potential need to involve another surgical team to harvest a donor graft from above the ankle, saving operating room time, anesthesia time, and overall cost to the patient. Cosmetically, scar formation above the ankle is also eliminated.
