Three cases of fingertip amputation at the level between the distal phalanx and the nail base in children below 2 years of age were treated by replantation or revascularization. The injury was complete in two, and incomplete in one. All three fingerstips survived with artery anastomosis without the need for a blood transfusion. In two venous anastomosis failed and venous drainage was achieved by 3-hourly pinprick. Survival of an amputated finger can be expected in cases where venous reconstruction is not possible, provided that there is adequate venous drainage.
