Successful nonextremity replantations, particularly of the facial anatomy and testicles, are rare procedures, and only a handful of cases have been reported. This article reviews the current literature in nonextremity replantations and representative cases performed at the authors' institution. Certain underlying themes and problems are consistently encountered in the surgical management of these cases. These are identified and reviewed. Although the replantation of these body parts remains technically challenging, all efforts should be made, when indicated, to repair these injuries microsurgically, because it currently offers the best reconstructive solution for these patients.
