The authors describe the advantages of using the basilic vein as an arterial conduit in the management of children with supracondylar humeral fractures requiring vascular repair. Eight children, aged 3 to 10 years, presented with supracondylar humeral fractures and vascular injury. In all eight children, the arteries were successfully reconstructed with a reversed, interposition basilic vein graft harvested from the ipsilateral arm. The basilic vein was anatomically consistent with few side… CONTINUE READING
