|Complete complex syndactyly
presents a number of problems, including

this problem: local flaps, skin grafts and composite tissue
grafts. This is an example of the use of composite toe pulp grafts.

performed bilaterally at the same setting. Composite skin-subcutaneous
tissue grafts were
harvested from the lateral aspect of the great toe and transferred to
the adjacent sides of the separated fingertips.
