Heterotopic replantations in mutilating hand injuries,presentation of three cases
In cases where a mutilated hand with multiple digital amputations
is concerned, an ideal replantation may not be possible
depending on the type and severity of the trauma. In
these cases, heterotopic digital replantations (HDR) may be
considered in order to achieve the maximum functional
outcome [1, 2].
In this article, hand restorations performed through heterotopic
replantations in three hands that have undergone
mutilating hand injuries have been put under the spotlight.
