Abstract

The authors describe, in the first report of this type of replantation surgery, a high success rate using delayed venous anastomosis in 16 consecutive distal phalangeal replantations under digital block. Among these replantations, seven fingers (43.8 percent) showed postoperative venous congestion and five fingers were reoperated on with delayed venous drainage under digital block. All the reoperated fingers were successfully drained by additional single or double venous drainage with a vein graft. As a result, 13 fingers survived (81.3 percent success rate). All operations were performed under a digital block.
