Microvascular replantation in a seven-month-old girl: a case report.

Replantation of an amputated digit in a child demands special techniques for success. Our experiences with replantation in this age group have shown that although these patients have a lower viability rate after digital replantation, those digits that do survive develop excellent function. In this case report of a 7-month-old with an amputated thumb, the indications, techniques, and prognosis of replantation in children are discussed.
