Abstract: To reduce ischemic time and yet achieve a high-quality repair, the replantation team should be well organized. The team should be conversant with microvascular techniques and employ efficient methods of tendon repair and bone fixation. Developments in instrumentation and technique in recent years have improved success rates and consequently enlarged the indications for replantation surgery. Nevertheless, the economics of care and long-term functional outcome should not be overlooked, and these issues remain unresolved in the replantation versus terminalization question. The authors address topics relevant to replantation, including techniques and complications of digital replantation, ring avulsion injuries, and distal replantation.
