Abstract

Camptodactyly of the lesser digits is commonly seen in patients with arthrogryposis. The flexed posture of the digit can be functionally limiting and necessitate surgical treatment to improve grasp function. In digits with normal bony anatomy, a lateral stiletto-shaped transposition flap combined with flexor digitorum superficialis tendon release, can improve finger deformity and function.
