The authors present their experience of the surgical management of accessory digits in neonates during a 6 year period (2006-2012). During this period a total of 135 cases were operated on using local anesthetic only when neonates were less than 8-10 weeks old. Through close relations with the local pediatricians, this pathway enables prompt and appropriate management, which is safe and obviates the need for general anesthesia. This paper highlights that managing this condition surgically can be performed in an appropriate pediatric setting safely solely under topical and local anesthesia with excellent cosmetic results as pediatric day-case procedures.
