After Komatsu and Tamai first performed the successful replantation of an amputated thumb in 1965 [1], 78 medical institutions in Japan reported 3126 cases of digit replantation up to July 1981 [2]. Thus, replantation had become an established surgical technique in Japan within little more than a decade after the world’s first digit replantation.
