BACKGROUND Venous congestion/insufficiency plays a major role in failure of finger replantation. Despite acceptable salvage rates with postoperative anticoagulation or leeching, operative technique remains the most important predictor of success. However, there are no indications in the literature on the benefit of anastomosing single versus multiple veins. METHODS A retrospective review of finger amputations from 2011 to 2013 was conducted.
