Digital amputations are common. They are mainly due to work related accidents and they are a real case of replantation emergency which must obey to well-established rules. The development of microsurgery has increased the success rate of these interventions. In this article, we report on our experience with a retrospective study of 18 single-finger replantations performed over a period of seven years in the department of plastic and hand surgery, in Ibn Sina teaching hospital in Rabat. Despite the problems such as the delay of medical transport and lack of emergency equipment, 16 fingers have been successfully replanted with acceptable functional and aesthetic result.
