Surgery involving the fingers can be technically challenging especially when utilizing fluoroscopic imaging. The surgical field is often obscured by the remaining fingers and attempts to position the hand may expose the surgeon and assistants to additional radiation exposure. This paper describes a simple and effective technique to remove the uninvolved fingers from the surgical field allowing for a more efficient operative procedure with less radiation exposure.
