In this paper, we selected eight patients who had cubital fossa electrical burns with exposure or damage of the brachial artery, during the period 2000 to 2004 and formulated an algorithm to salvage upper limbs. We demonstrated the effectiveness of the algorithm to rescue the extremity from amputation and to restore the functional ability combined with coverage of the defects.
