Replantation of right hindlimbs in 76 immature rats was performed to study the factors affecting longitudinal growth of replanted extremities. There was a significant difference in tibia length between the replanted limb and the contralateral normal limb. The difference was significantly influenced by the ischemic interval (2 vs 4 hours), but not by suture method (intact vessels, vascular anastomosis with 10-0 nylon or 11-0 nylon). The replantation of immature extremities should be promptly undertaken because of the vulnerability of the epiphysis to ischemic insult.
