Mangling hand injuries can be difficult to manage owing to the severity and heterogeneity of the injuries. Outcomes after reconstruction of unique injuries are less well-known but provide valuable insight. We present an unusual spare parts reconstruction of a bilateral upper-extremity mangling injury treated with a heterotopic thumb-to-thumb replantation, an acute forearm fasciocutaneous free flap, and targeted muscle reinnervation. This report highlights the utility of microsurgical reconstruction with available autogenous tissue in the acute setting.
