Please read this article about Upper Extremity Replantation by Dr. Steinberg and Dr. Kitay of JOI San Marco. Replantation is the reattachment of a part that has been completely severed from the body.  This is to be distinguished from revascularization.  Where the limb has been incompletely amputated and a portion of the tissue remains in continuity. In this situation, venous and/or lymphatic drainage will frequently exist across the wound.

In both setting, vascular repair is necessary to prevent necrosis of the injured part.  However, replantation generally involves grater difficulty and a lower viability rate due to the lack of all outflow from the injured part.   Read the entire article in the attachment on this page.
