Abstract: Background: The loss of the finger can lead to psychological problems. Although several reconstructive techniques may exist, the use of osseous-integrated implants to anchor digital prosthesis presents a suitable alternative for the amputation of finger. The surgery for implant placement has initially been described as a two-stage technique. However, no study in the literature has attempted to compare this technique with onestage technique and stated a clear superiority technique in the implant retained finger prosthesis. Methods: This article describes two cases of digital amputation as a result of accident; a 45-year-old female whose second finger of right hand was lost and a 25-year-old male patient with amputation of the first finger of right hand. result and conclusion: One-stage implant placement technique for implant retained finger prosthesis is a reliable, safe and efficient option that allows a good result in a significantly lower operating time and hospital visits compared to the twostage technique. It could therefore, be considered as good option for implant retained finger prosthesis.
