Abstract

A group of 18 patients received a high tension electrical injury of the upper extremity. The over-all results were dismal. Opportunity for improvement appears to lie in a regimen of rapid and complete removal of devitalized skin and muscle, avoidance of contamination and desication and the early provision of blood supply and wound coverage with pedicled flap coverage.
