Department of Hand and Reconstructive Microsurgery, National University Hospital, Singapore.

A volar advancement flap based on V-Y concept for fingertip reconstruction is described. The crescent flap utilises curved incision to preserve fingertip contour and distal digital crease. Satisfactory outcome was achieved in two patients who underwent fingertip reconstruction using this technique. Its advantages are technical simplicity, minimal donor morbidity, and may be used in situation where conventional V-Y incision is unsuitable.
