dc.description.abstract With modern limb salvage procedures, successful reconstruction is not always achieved. This lecture will utilize case presentations to show increased functional benefit in patients who underwent elective amputation surgeries. Neurological damage, severe burn, and brachial plexus injuries are common occurrences that lead to a nonfunctional problematic reconstructed limb. Typically considered failures by the surgical team, potential prosthetic users need to be made aware of the positive benefits of elective surgeries. Preliminary outcomes measures will be presented including South Hampton Hand Test and Functional Capacity Evaluations. en_US
