Abstract

The indications for nonvascularized toe phalanx transfers are limited. Radiolucency in the region of the transferred physis does not necessarily indicate a functional growth plate. Older age is not a contraindication to toe phalanx transfers. The results of this procedure can be improved and information from experimental physeal transplantation may help the surgeon to improve technique.
