CONGENITAL EXCESS FINGER DISEASE, TREATMENT AND OPERATION
Excess finger disease (polydactyly) is the most common congenital hand anomaly. The excess finger can be seen next to the thumb or the little finger as well as in the centre of the hand as in the central type of polydactyly. The excess can be only on finger bone,s or it can also be an entire finger.
In the excess finger operation, the excess finger tissue is removed so as not to deteriorate the sensation and the movement of the finger to be left behind. Growth retardation of the finger is seen when the operation of fingers with common vessels and nerves is delayed. Therefore, operation in the early stage is recommended.
