Result at the end of 2. step operation

done ambulant in subaxillary plexus. Please be not shocked, the appearance of the hand is typical at end of such operation. Meanwhile the healing is complete. No complications occurred. Pat. needs Physiotherapy for app. 6 – 10 weeks



Final Result 3 month after operation

however, the extension will increase further within app. 6 months. The appearance of the scare is not yet normal, the scare is (as always)stiff and red. This will come to a normal, hardly visible final result within the next time.
