Traumatic closed transection of the triceps brachii: a case report.

Abstract

There are only a few reports about intramuscular injury to the triceps brachii, offering the surgeon limited clinical options and estimates of prognosis. This is a case report of a patient with a traumatic closed tear of his triceps brachii who was treated surgically. This report presents the initial surgical management and data throughout 64 months of follow-up, during which time the patient showed continual, gradual improvement in function with no functional limitations.
