Abstract/OtherAbstract:
From May 1965 to December 1979, finger replantation were performed on 157 patients (229 digits). Of these 205 fingers were successfully replanted with an overall success rate of 89.5%. In most cases, sensation was recovered to more than protective sensation and approximately 50% of the cases showed 2-point-dicrimination of less than 15 mm. Restricted joint motion was a problem in the replantation at "no-man's-land" in fingers. However, most of the patients gained useful pinch or grasp in their daily living activities and were very satisfied with their successfully replanted fingers. Operative indications, replantation technique, postoperative management and clinical results are reported.
