Replantation of amputated digits and hands in children


Journal Article

This study presents our experience with replantation of amputated digits or hands in 11 children. Although in young children the blood vessels are quite small, successful vessel anastomosis can be achieved. Our present feeling is that replantation of the thumb, index finger, multiple fingers, or the hand results in a more functional upper extremity than can be achieved by any type of prosthetic replacement.
