In the management of hand injuries, one should always bear in mind the function of the hand while deciding upon the modality of treatment. In this study, we performed reconstruction of traumatic hand soft tissue defects in 40 patients during 6-month period. Five main surgical principles were applied including local flaps, regional flaps, distant pedicled flaps, distant free flaps and combined flaps. All flaps survived completely with no major complications.
