Avulsion injuries of the upper extremities are challenging injuries for microsurgeons, and almost always crush and degloving components are present. Due to the severe damage to the neurovascular structures, microsurgical treatment options are quite difficult, but technical advances in microsurgery have resulted in increases in the possibilities of success in crush-avulsion type replantation. Good functional outcomes can be obtained with successful replantation in these cases. In this case report, we present a successful replantation of the totally degloved thumb, the result of a crush-avulsion injury caused by silicone molding machine.
