Stems of My Elephant Ear Plant Broke

All of the stems of my large elephant ear plant broke off while moving into house. The central stem is now completely brown and dry. Is it dead or can it be revived?

If the plant had been growing in a pot the whole time, it should send up some new leaves eventually. If you dug it up from the ground, if you brought enough root, it should be able to send up new leaves. Of course the dead, brown parts can't be "revived;" they are dead. The only thing the plant can do is grow new leaves.
