We examined cases of complete finger amputation without emergency surgery on the day and replantation at a later date. According to several reports, it is possible to extend the time of finger amputation without re-refluxing by proper storage. There is also a report that replantation after 48 hours is possible. Based on this study, the success rate using preserved cut fingers did not decrease compared with emergency surgery. Finger amputation is an emergency operation, but it can be performed after 24 hours if it is managed correctly. We were able to preserve and store the finger for replantation the next day, which we termed waiting replantation.
