Management of long bone defects occurring in accidents or war injuries is a difficult problem, From 1978 to 1986, 11 patients were treated for long bone defects of the humerus ( 10 cases) and radius (one case), using free vascularized fibular transfer by microsurgical technique .The patients were followed for 4 months and in all of them, selective angiography and scanning revealed exellent graft :::union:::. We consider free vascularized fibular bone transfer a suitable alternative in management of long bone defects especially those complicated by other reconstructive methods.
