An ideal reconstruction of fingertip injuries should provide good sensibility and no pain in the activities of daily life. We report a case of a professional trumpet player who sustained a severe avulsion injury when his right index finger was crushed in a slamming door. The soft tissue of the distal finger was debrided circumferentially. To cover the defect we performed a free dorsal middle phalangeal finger flap from the ipsilateral ring finger. This flap provides excellent sensory recovery and an aesthetic outcome.
