A 23-year-old male student presented to our clinic with a traumatic complex ring avulsion of his right dominant index finger. Clinical evaluation revealed a complete distal amputation of the DIP joint with a laceration of the soft tissue at the middle phalanx and a rupture of the FDP-2-tendon far proximally. We hereby present the patient’s clinical outcome after reconstruction with a distally based extended DMCA-II flap. To our own knowledge, this is the first report of an extended distally based DMCA flap for coverage of a class IVd ring avulsion injury in combination with autologous amputate skin transplantation. Level of Evidence: Level V, therapeutic study.
