An alternative free flap technique in a patient presenting with an incomplete amputation in the right cubital region, resulting from a gunshot wound, is introduced. The defect area was repaired using a flow-through fasciocutaneous free flap, which, when following a cubical or popliteal region amputation, is a suitable option for revascularisation and salvage of the extremity.
