Abstract

Fingertip replantation is technically challenging, but in a motivated patient excellent aesthetic and functional outcomes can be achieved. Fingertip microanatomy by zone is described to facilitate the classification and treatment of these injuries. In this article, we outline our preferred techniques for fingertip replantation and review the current body of evidence surrounding indications, techniques, and outcomes while highlighting opportunities for future study.
