Female 25 year .. 4 months ago and because of bomb .. open tibial fracture gustilo IIIc with anterior and posterior tibial artery ruptures ..and with 10cm bone defect and muscular crush … deep fibular nerve was intact …. we decided limb salvage …. external fixator has been done and I have  repaired anterior tibial artery ….. for covering of bone and skin defects we have transfered of posterior musular into defect ….after 2 months the patient had second operation to cover defect with skin graft …after 4 months the skin graft has healed and the patient had no infection CRP 3 and ESR 10 ….because of major defect of tibia the final operation is local vasularized fibular graft …
