Background : Finger amputation is a physical and mental trauma. It can disrupt individuals’ daily life. Numerous advances are made regarding the replantation of amputated fingers. These all owe to the advances of microscopic surgical methods and respective specialists’ understanding of hand traumas. Establishing arterial blood circulation and venous flow are taken to be the most important factors in successful finger replantation.

Results : Patients were between 18 to 54 years old. One case had smoking background of 15 years given up for 3 months from surgery. Hospital admission was 48 h. Mean surgery time was 5.5 h for each finger. In all cases, replantation was successful.
Conclusion : Although our method is technically time-consuming, it can be promising with respect successful results.
