In Their Own Words
Unit is the most recent addition to the Department of
Orthopedic and Trauma, Assiut University. Though rather
recently established, it is highly equipped, very active and
rapidly developing Unit. Introduction of vascularized
fibular grafts, and multiple tissue free transfers have
added much to our potential in managing complex problems
resulting from trauma and tumor resection. Perfecting nerve
sutures, surgery for brachial plexus injuries and free
active muscle transfers has helped many disabled patients.
Revascularization and replantation of limbs and digits have
saved many parts severed by trauma.
