Above-elbow arm replantation during pregnancy.

Journal Article

We report a successful replantation of an above-elbow amputated left arm in a 26-year-old female with a good, functional, long-term result. The patient was at 18 weeks estimated gestational age at the time of surgery. Major upper extremity replantation during pregnancy has not been previously described in the literature. Current operative and perioperative aspects, including considerations that favored microsurgical replantation in this unusual case, are discussed.
