Abstract

Finger and partial finger amputations are some of the most frequently encountered forms of partial hand loss. A high quality aesthetic prosthesis with passive function can be helpful to the patient since loss or congenital absence or malformation have both a social and psychological impact on the patient. Prosthetics is an art and science which provides a lifelike appearance to the lost structures of the patient. This case report presents the fabrication of a silicone finger prosthesis which had good suspension, adequate function, was comfortable to use and aesthetically acceptable to the patient.
