Traumatic near total amputation of the hand with major vascular injury may lead to loss of the hand with dire consequences to the patient. A prompt attempt at salvaging the hand is key to prevent the untoward consequences. In addition, the awareness of the possibility of salvage in our environment should be spread among health care personnel as well as the need for multispecialty approach to the management. We report 2 patients with near total unilateral amputation of their hands proximal to the wrist who underwent salvage procedures.
