A single case of successful free groin flap transfer to the hand is presented. Its use demonstrates a distinct advantage of free flap transfer, preventing dependent edema and enforced immobilization of the hand necessitated by conventional technics. It also demonstrates a successful end-to-side microarterial anastomosis, thus allowing a continued normal blood supply to the hand.
