3 days postoperatively, the dressing was changed down to the interface dressing which was left in place, and the outer dressings and the splint were then replaced. The patient was discharged with hand elevation and asked to return in one week.
2 weeks after grafting, there was complete take of the graft and the patient was referred for hand therapy. He continued to recover uneventfully and 3 months later he was completely healed with full range of motion.
