    Amputation by crush injuries generally represents a contraindication for replantation, and especially when the lesion is caused by the summation of multiple concomitant traumatic mechanisms. We present the case of a 22 year- old female who arrived in our service with a crush/torsion amputation of all long fingers at the metacarpo-phalangeal level of the right hand. After the unsuccessful attempt of replantation, the functional reconstruction of the hand was achieved by using a double free flap transfer: anterolateral thigh perforator flap (ALT) and digital block transfer of second and third toes.
