Replantation of totally amputated ears

Replantation of totally amputated ears From a total of 1525 replantations or revascularizations performed at our clinic we report three replantations of totally amputated ears. In two the cause of amputation was a car accident and in the third case a dog bite. In the first case no suitable artery for anastomosis was found on the amputated part and the replantation was performed by means of arterialization of the venous system [3, 8, 12]. After 2 days the mild venous stasis subsided, and a normal blood supply to the ear was established. In the two other cases both arteries and veins were sutured without any complications. All three cases healed successfully and completely. European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals
