Özet

Objectives: Clinically, the Z-plasty lengthening is the only method used in the upper extremity, whereas several different techniques such as the Vulpius and Baker are used in the lower extremity. In this study, the usage of the modified Vulpius and Baker tendon lengthening techniques in the upper extremity was investigated.
