Abstract

Management of recurrent radial deviation after centralization for radial longitudinal deficiency patients usually involves some form of wrist fusion. We report on a child with recurrence after centralization, where correction and successful maintenance of a good functional and cosmetic position were obtained by vascularized second metatarsophalangeal joint transfer.
