Prosthesis of any type is a necessity for a patient with defect to continue their daily life, on a socially acceptable level. The most commonly encountered forms of defects or loss include complete or partial finger amputations. One of the major concerns in the replacement of a partially amputated finger is inadequate retention of the prosthesis. This paper presents prosthetic rehabilitation of partially amputated index finger with a silicone prosthesis using reduced stump model technique and customized acrylic nail which enhances retention and esthetics of finger prosthesis.
