Replantation of very thumb distal amputations with pre-osteosynthesis interpositional vein graft



Replantation of very thumb distal amputations with pre-osteosynthesis interpositional vein graft



Journal of Hand Surgery 26(2): 105-107



Replantation of distal thumb amputations is difficult because of the anatomic orientation of the thumb and the location and size of vessels. A simplified technique is presented, in which interposition vein grafts are anastomosed to a terminal branch of the digital artery and a subcutaneous vein in the amputated thumb tip. This technique is convenient, relatively easy and reliable.
