Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This report describes a case of cross-arm transfer. Satisfactory function was restored, including good protective sensation, excellent grip strength, and surprisingly good return to preoperative activities. Cross-arm transfer should be considered in situations where bilateral arm amputation is present and neither can be replanted because of tissue loss.
