Digital replantation is the best reconstruction available for the correct indications

Amputated thumbs, multiple fingers, and paediatric replants are the strongest indications

A functional result requires a mobile, stable, sensate digit of adequate length

Replant survival and functional results are dependent on multiple factors including microsurgical expertise

Spare part surgery is a unique opportunity to salvage tissue in an unreplantable limb.
