Sharp cut injury of forearm was due to fall of sharp glass. It was repaired within 8 hours. There were unexpected findings of injuries of radial and ulnar arteries, median and ulnar nerves and tendons and muscles of flexor compartment of forearm. Firstly ulnar and radial never were repaired then median and ulnar nerves were repaired ,after that tendons and muscles were repaired . wound was kept partial open due expected swelling. Limb was dressed and put in a slab and kept elevated.When swelling subsided, secondary suturing done Physiotherapy was advised.
