A number of case reports and series have reported successful replantation after prolonged periods of ischemia. However, the acceptable range of normothermic and hypothermic ischemic storage remains controversial. There is little question that the tolerance of composite tissue for ischemia is dependent on the quantity of contained skeletal muscle. We ...
