Abstract

Cleft hand is a congenital deformity of the hand consisting of varying absence of the central structures of the hand. One form is the V-shaped cleft in the palm with severe narrowing of the web space and absence of the middle finger. Most peer-reviewed studies in the scientific literature describe surgical treatment during childhood. This study illustrates our experience with treating cleft hand deformity in a skeletally mature patient. We describe a novel surgical technique and the 3 year results using a Z-shaped carpal bone osteotomy reconstruction in a 22 year-old woman results.
