In this report we describe our encounter of a case of hand trauma referred to our center presenting with incomplete left thumb amputation at metacarpal level with extensor pollicis longus (EPL) and flexor pollicis longus (FPL) tendon avulsion from the tenomuscular junction. After metacarpal bone fixation the ulnar digital artery was anastomosed and the digital nerves were coapted. Transfer of extensor indicis proprius (EIP) to EPL and side-to-side suturing of the FPL to the deep flexor tendon of the index finger were performed.
