Summary of "Reconstruction of Gustilo IIIC Injuries of the Lower Extremity."

Gustilo type IIIC open tibia fractures are characterized by an ischemic limb requiring immediate arterial repair. In this patient population, the decision between primary amputation and limb salvage can be challenging. This study aims to evaluate the reconstructive outcomes of patients with Gustilo IIIC injuries.
