Hand is a dexterous and sensitive organ of the body responsible for the finer movements. The finer movements of the Hand are lost following injury and infective lesions like leprosy following reconstructive surgery to hand. It is the duty of the Hand Therapist to restore the finer movements of the Hand. It requires knowledge of Hand and expertise.
Hand therapy is an off-shoot but specialized segment of physiotherapy. The General physiotherapists most of the time concentrate on injuries pertaining to the “Lower Limbs and Back” where their concentration is more to establish stability. For a hand to be mobile the mobilization period must be short and Therapists must concentrate more on the mobility of the fingers rather than stability. Hence physical Therapists require a special training and knowledge with other to rehabilitate the Hand.
The Course on “Current Concepts in Hand Therapy was held to inculcate the knowledge of Hand Therapy to General Physiotherapists. In addition this course provided a forum for the senior Hand Therapists to share and disseminate their knowledfe with other colleagues.

Supermicrosurgery is an evolving technique which allows anastomosis of vessels of size 0.3 to 0.8 mm. The concept of Supermicrosurgery opened up a newer array of reconstructive options and techniques for the plastic surgeons. Newer applications of Supermicrosurgery includes fingertip replantations with venule grafts, toe tip transfers for fingertip loss, partial auricular transfers for total tracheal and eyelid defects, lymphaticovenular anastomosis under local anesthesia for lymphedema, facial palsy reconstructive and perforator – to – perforator free flaps used to reconstruct extremity and facial defects. Although Supermicrosurgery needs further technical adaptation to handle miniature sized blood vessels and ultra fine instruments , it has the advantages that the surgery is more simpler;
The flap dissecting time is considerably reduced. The major advantage is that a free flap can be harvested from virtually anywhere in the body thereby reducing the donor site morbidity. The main key to success is to get familiarized with the anatomical variations of the perforators.
The surgeries undertaken in the live workshop were as under:
(a) Swollen legs following Filarial Lymphedema of limbs
(b) Swollen Lower limbs following Excision or irradiation of inguinal and iliac lymph nodes
(c) Swollen upper limbs following treatment for cancer breast with lymph node excision or irradiation
(d) Reconstruction of facial asymmetry following facial nerve paralysis
(e) Free flaps(perforator to perforator in soft tissue defects of face and both upper & lower limbs)
