Author(s): Dr. Abhijit Chandge, Dr. Amit Patil and Dr. Amit Pilkhane
Abstract: Animal bite causing vascular injury is not uncommon. We present a rare case of brachial artery injury with humerus fracture in a five year old child, injury caused by domestic pig bite. Early surgical intervention is key to success in such cases. A five year old boy presented with brachial artery injury with humerus fracture following domestic pig bite. Immediate surgical intervention in form of open reduction and internal fixation of humerus fracture and brachial artery thrombectomy with repair saved his upper extremity.
