Abstract

In traumatic proximal forearm amputation where replantation is not possible, ''spare parts'' from the amputated segment can be used to maintain adequate length for successful use of a below-elbow prosthesis. Two patients with long-term follow-up are presented in whom forearm length was preserved with the use of a sensate palmar skin free flap.
