The skeletal muscle model in the Rhesus monkey has now been transferred to man with successful transplantation of a thigh muscle to the lower leg, on an extended neurovascular pedicle. Further application of this principal to the upper extremity are limitless. Microvascular autogenous grafts are now used routinely by our replantation team on a weekly basis to salvage avulsed and crushed parts. Studies on the modification of vascular spasm and the monitoring of microblood flow and under study and will further the successful clinical transplantation and replantation of tissue. The evaluation of nerve functional return, both sensory and motor in theses successful clinical cases is now possible.
