Unsuccessful replantation of metacarpal hand after venous thrombosis – case report

Title variants
Languages of publication
Trans-metacarpal hand replantation is one of the most complex and difficult procedures in the reconstructive microsurgery. As far as we know the arrangement of the palmar arterial network, the problem lies in the absence of accurate venous maps at the dorsum of the hand. The quality of venous circulation structure at the replanted hand determine the success of the surgery. In this paper we present a case of a failed replantation of a metacarpal hand after early thrombosis at the venous microcirculation system.
