A 15-year-old male who presented to Suez Canal University Hospitals in March 2018 with a severe crush injury to his forearm and amputated hand. Ischemia time was 4 h. On examination, the amputation was at the level of the distal third of the forearm with massive tissue loss. To help primary anastomosis of the vessels, bone shortening was done from the amputated part, followed by temporary fixation of the hand by two K-wires in the radius and ulna. End-to-end anastomoses were done for both Ulnar artery and cephalic vein. The final outcome of the patient, after one year, was regained sensation of the hand and holding objects. In conclusion, cephalic vein reconstruction as a single vein could sustain a whole replanted hand with no congestion. This technique should be encouraged whenever applicable as it might save the hand.
