The following case report and literature review will detail the management of a traumatic amputation of the arm in a 30-year-old man. Compared with lower limbs, upper limb prosthesis usually results in significant suboptimal function by any measure. While the literature lacks high-quality evidence about functional outcomes following proximal amputations of the upper limb, it is known that reimplantation in upper limbs have superior functional outcomes compared with prosthesis. The mechanism of injury, transportation of the amputated part, type of ischemia, timing of surgery, surgical techniques/factors and postoperative rehabilitation will be discussed as factors affecting outcome of reimplantation.
