Replantation Problems

Replantation is surgical reattachment of a body part most commonly a finger ,hand or arm that has been completely cut from a person’s body. This is done by microvascular repair and require microsurgical skills and good OT setup with microscope .

Preservation of amputated part is also very important. on proximal part compression dressing has to be done to stop the bleeding,stitches should not be applied ,cut part cleaned properly and then preserve in ice box without direct contact to the ice, a layer of cotton or cloth should be between them and properly wrapped in sterile gauze or if not available in clean polythene. Hospital or doctor who is equipped with microvascular repair facilities should be contacted and patient should reach hospital as early as possible because in these kind of surgeries time between injury and repair is very important and decide the final outcome.
