Step by step
Second metacarpal bone exposure
Mark the skin incision on the dorsal side as well as on the volar side. Also, mark the skin distally from the metacarpophalangeal joint for skin flap creation.
Skin flap creation
It is advised to leave the skin flap long dorsally in order to avoid webspace contracture. Also, be aware that the radial part of the skin flap is used to cover the wound so leave the radial part long as well.
