Current indications for hand and face allotransplantation.

March 2009

There is growing excitement centered on the possibilities of composite tissue allotransplantation (CTA) in many medical centers around the United States. As CTA programs begin to form, criteria to guide patient selection for these highly complex procedures is warranted. At this time the contraindications for CTA are more easily defined than the indications. What is clear is that a thorough multidisciplinary evaluation of each individual patient will be needed to determine the global impact and complexity of the defect. The role of the surgeon is to identify the feasibility of the CTA reconstruction and balance this with a complete knowledge of conventional reconstructive techniques. Conventional treatments may be used in place of CTA or as salvage for CTA failure.
