This case centers around a young male patient with a 1-year-old burn scar on his volar index finger that keeps the finger flexed and prevents it from being straightened. Here, Dr. Friedstat releases the contracture and places a full-thickness skin graft from the right groin crease. A K-wire was also used to prevent flexion of the finger during the healing process.
