Sixty-four patients with traumatic brachial artery injuries were treated. Fifty had penetrating and 14 had blunt injuries. Associated extremity and torso injuries were common. Despite an excellent vascular patency rate of 97 percent, limb loss resulted from severe soft-tissue injury and functional disability occurred due to nerve injury.
