Restoration of digital extension after chronic extensor loss has not been detailed extensively in the literature. The present report details an unusual case of composite tissue loss from the dorsum of the hand after a chronic burn wound. After debridement for chronic carpal osteomyelitis and free-tissue transfer were performed, staged wrist fusion and two-stage extensor tendon reconstruction resulted in a stable, pain-free wrist and functional digital extension. The present case illustrates that two-stage extensor tendon reconstruction, when necessary, is indeed feasible.
