Digital amputations in children can frequently be reconstructed using microvascular replantation techniques. An adequate preoperative assessment of the patient and amputated part is important to define associated trauma and to determine the candidacy for replantation. Preoperative care of the injured extremity and patient, as well as optimal perioperative medical and surgical management, increases the success of these microsurgical procedures.
