The article discusses the nature and management of vascular injuries in the upper and lower limbs following blunt trauma. Majority of axillary artery injuries occurred among motorcyclists. Injuries to the superficial femoral artery were attributed to major trauma and characterized by the thigh being torn open with avulsion of the vessels. The damaged segment of an artery could be excised and an end-to-end anastomosis may be performed considering that the injury is short.
