Digital Replantation


Digital Replantation is a surgical procedure used for the reconstruction of amputated fingers. It is performed when the amputated fingers are rejoined, not only to restore the same form but also their function. Surgeons are very careful while replanting the thumb because shortening of the thumb can have adverse effects on the functioning of the hand.Amputations in children such as amputation of multiple fingers deserve to be replanted at all levels. Digits do not have muscles in them. If the amputated part is properly stored, it can withstand preservation for a longer period of time.
