Introduction: Upper limbs are of huge importance in the humans life. Traumatic limb loss is considered a burden on the amputee life therefore Replantation is the most valuable solution even if with less functions than normal.
Aim of the Study: Is to prove that Replantation of amputated upper limb is of a great value and better done with a dedicated multidisciplinary team.
Patient and Methodology: We had one patient with traumatic amputation of right upper limb and Replantation was done by orthopedic, vascular and plastic surgeons under general anesthesia. Follow up for 2 months was done and the patient is currently under follow up.
Conclusion: Although the success rate of replantation is very high, the functional outcome following major limb replantation is often disappointing. Preoperative, operative and postoperative steps should be considered and done in sequence with dedicated replantation team to reach the maximum functional regain to facilitate the victim’s life again and help him to live dependent with accepted motor power and sensation.
