It is generally accepted that Hoephner [1] first successfully performed experimental replantation of amputated limbs in dogs in 1903. Carrel and Guthrie [2] also attempted experimental replantation of completely amputated thighs in dogs in 19{at06. Thereaf}ter interest in replantation research diminished and was restarted by Lapchinsky [3], Snyder et al. [4], and Onji et al. [5] in Japan in the 1960s.
