Description

A 40-year-old right-hand-dominant man presented with a third-degree burn to the dorsum of right hand, with exposed tendons, and second-degree burns to his right middle, ring, and small fingers (Figure 1). The patient underwent tangential excision and reconstruction with a parascapular fascial free flap (Figure 2) and split-thickness skin graft.
