Revascularization of the degloved skin is generally accepted as the best option for the management of totally degloved hands. Nevertheless, the selection of vessels for anastomoses is usually difficult in this situation, and insufficient perfusion of the degloved hand skin is common after arterial repair. We present 2 cases of patients who sustained totally degloved hand injuries. Favorable outcomes of replantation were achieved with added arteriovenous anastomoses between the dorsal veins of the degloved hand skin and the digital arteries.
