Celoid – Contracture – Scare painful – Scare contracted

This is a case, where after operation, done by other MD, a contracted and disturbing scare did result.

Clearly visible the straight appearance of the scare. It should have been an ankled incision. The usual ankle in this area is app. 90 degrees.

The app. 30 year old lady had with this scare problems to extend the finger, and local pain through Tension in the scare. In local anaesthesia an excision of the scare and Flap performing through additional incisions has been done,resulting in a “lege artis” performed Z – Plastic. The “Z” form lets the scar be flexible as a spring. Pat. was full satisfied with the result.


Situation after unsuccessful 1. Operation

Unfortunally till now there is  no photographic documentation of the result. However,clearly visible is the subtotal straight Scare. This is pictured before Dr. Peters fixed the problem.
