Complex post-traumatic injuries of the extremities represent a challenging problem which affects both the surgical “strategy” and the definition of the overall management. In these cases, repair of vascular injuries can be particularly difficult due to subversion of the anatomic planes and unexpected anatomical anomalies. We wish to describe a case of complex post-traumatic injury of the upper extremities, in the presence of early brachial artery branching at middle third of the arm, and discuss the problems related to the treatment of severe post traumatic extremity lesions, particularly in the presence of anatomical vascular anomalies.
