Two-staged flexor tendon repair rely on the effect of the pseudo-tendon sheath that developed by the effect of the silicone tendon prosthesis. The second stage of the reconstruction is performed 1 to 6 months after the first operation by removal of the silicone tendon prosthesis and tendon grafting. In this study, we are presenting a removal of silicone prosthesis 6 years after insertion for flexor tendon reconstruction.
