Frankovicová M, Guzanin S, Blazejová J, Brandebur O. [Successful replantation of subtotal amputation of the forearm]. Rozhl Chir. 1990;69(3):180-4.
The authors present the case-history of a 16-year-old student with subtotal amputation of the distal part of the right forearm. After shortening of the bone by 3 cm they reconstructed the blood vessels of the forearm by means of five venous grafts. The operation lasted seven hours. The function of the right hand is excellent.
