A worthwhile operation? Benedikt Strub & Arndt von Campe & Claudia Meuli-Simmen Received: 8 August 2011 /Accepted: 10 October 2011 /Published online: 2 December 2011 Springer-Verlag 2011 Introduction with two K-wires (1.0) was induced. A homodigital chimeric reverse pedicle island flap with a 5-mm-wide Functional reconstruction of Mallet III defects requires strip of extensor tendon vascularized by the ulnar vessel restoration of the extensor tendon function in the DIP joint was then elevated from dorsal to palmar, carefully with adequate soft-tissue cover. Tissue covering is mostly avoiding the ulnar nerve, and transposed into the distal done with local flaps. Also, distant and free flaps have been defect (Figs. 2, 3, 4, 5,and 6). The extensor tendon was described. Mainly, the tendon reconstruction is very fixed distally to the distal phalanx using a transosseous complicated. Carrying out an arthrodesis is a short and suture. A traditional extensor tendon suture was used alternative surgical way to go, but some patients, like proximally with non-absorbable 4-0 thread. The flap musicians, need
