We present a case of partial amputation of the forearm resulting in soft-tissue and radial artery defects that were simultaneously repaired using a large artery-vein-artery venous flap. The flap measured 4 × 11 cm, and we attribute its complete survival and long-term durability to the artery-vein-artery configuration.
