Forty-three children were treated for peripheral arterial injuries. Single injuries of the radial, ulnar, anterior or posterior tibial arteries with good collateral supply were best treated by ligation. Injuries about the elbow or knee, associated with fractures, carried the highest morbidity. Early arteriography, prompt exploration in doubtful cases, and a high level of expertise are essential for good results in these two areas.
