Abstract

Complex forearm injuries involve damage to the skin and underlying tissues. The best results are obtained when a multidisciplinary approach is taken to their management. Management of the acute injury should be done in a manner that takes into consideration late reconstructive procedures and best possible final function outcome. This article reviews initial management and options for soft-tissue coverage. Advantages and disadvantages of a wide variety of procedures are discussed and in addition the authors review some of the more controversial areas and give personal preferences.
