Abstract

Conventional, semi-custom finger prostheses centrally fabricated of polyvinyl chloride are often rejected due to suboptimal appearance and a tendency to stain. Rejection is frustrating for the amputee, prosthetist and referring physician. This article summarizes 20 years of experience by the senior author in using custom-fabricated, custom-colored prostheses made from silicone elastomers.
