Syndactyly correction results in skin deficiency. Skin grafting is avoided by the use of an extended dorsal interdigital flap for the web and approximation of the side flaps to cover the length of the digits. The technique has been used in 17 cases with all varieties of syndactyly. There were no early complications. The follow-up averaged 2 years. There were two cases of web creep but no contractures. The method combines the advantage of direct suture with an acceptable frequency of web creep.
