Abstract

Civilian penetrating injuries to the upper extremities are becoming seldom, with few case reports presented in the recent literature. Nevertheless, the brachial artery is the most frequently injured artery, accounting for approximately 30% of all vascular injuries.

The authors present two clinical cases of brachial artery penetrating trauma with a stab corrected with an interposition saphenous bypass graft.
