Subclavian and axillary arterial injuries are uncommon and in the setting of scapulothoracic dissociation present difficulties in diagnosis, assessment, and reconstruction. We present a case of subclavian artery disruption in such a setting, in which palmar duplex identified the need for reperfusion and provided assessment of an extra-anatomic bypass. Palmar arterial duplex may provide a useful tool in select cases of upper extremity arterial trauma.
