A free digital fillet flap was used to achieve soft tissue coverage of the ulnar border of the hand in a 38 year old man with an industrial fan blade injury to the dominant hand. The use of a digital fillet flap from an unsalvageable ring finger allowed for a one‐stage procedure avoiding donor site morbidity or need for additional reconstructive surgery.
