Advances in microsurgery have produced multiple options for microsurgical restoration of distal digital function. However, because of the complexity of most mutilating hand injuries, these possibilities can be readily overlooked. A surgical awareness of these options for 'like' tissue transplantation is now necessary for complete mutilating hand injury care. These 'minor' aesthetic and functional microsurgical procedures can be major factors in overall patient acceptance and utilization of the reconstructed hands.
