This issue of Hand Clinics will focus on flap reconstruction. Flap reconstruction is a very large part of upper extremity surgery following a traumatic injury. This issue will cover the entire process including anatomy, decision-making strategies on where to source/harvest flaps, and a large number of papers tailored to specific surgical procedures: different parts of the hand and upper extremity, pediatric reconstruction, and aesthetics.
