Crossover replantation as a salvage procedure following bilateral transhumeral upper limb amputation a case report

Abstract Cross-over replantation is a salvage option for
cases with bilateral extremity amputations where the
wound conditions do not enable an orthotopic replantation.
Here, we present a 24-year-old patient who applied to our
center with bilateral transhumeral amputations. Due to the
wound conditions, a cross-over replantation was performed.
24 months after the initial operation, the patient
exhibits good protective sensation at the distal levels and
function to some degree, whereas the active range of
motion is not as promising as previously expected. In this
article, we present this case together with its immediate and
long-term outcomes and the consequences of the cross-over
replantation.
