Abstract

Traumatic pediatric vascular injuries are rare and complicated. The brachial artery is more vulnerable because of its anatomy. Supracondylar fractures of the humerus followed by penetrating trauma are the common causes of such injuries. Median nerve, because of its close proximity to brachial artery, is also involved in such injuries. We present a case of isolated traumatic transection of brachial artery and median nerve in a boy managed by primary interposition grafts.
