Replantation

Replantation of amputated parts of the body

Surgical reattachment of totally detached (cut) part of the body at its original site is known as replantation. Totally cut fingers, thumb, toes, hand, foot, avulsed scalp, penis, etc can be successfully replanted at Bisoniya hospital. The goal of replantation surgery is to reattach and restore function to as much of the injured part as possible. Replantation is usually recommended when the replanted part will work at least as well as prosthesis.

There are a number of steps in the replantation process. First, damaged tissue is carefully removed. Then, bone ends are trimmed before they are rejoined. This makes putting together the soft tissue on either side of the wound easier. Arteries, veins, nerves, muscles, and tendons are stitched together. Uncovered nerves, tendons, and joints may be covered by a free-tissue transfer, where a piece of tissue is removed from another part of the body, along with its arteries and veins.

Finally, areas without skin are covered with skin that has been taken from other areas of the body.

How to preserve amputated part - keep amputated part in dry/clean polythene bag, make it waterproof and keep this bag having amputated part in another container having water and ice. There should not be direct contact of body part and water. Then refer to replantation centre at earliest
