Full-length ulnar nerve harvest by means of endoscopy for contralateral C7 nerve root transfer in the treatment of brachial plexus injuries
Current Concepts of the Treatment of Adult Brachial Plexus Injuries
In this study, we evaluated the results of the trapezius transfer for reconstruction of shoulder motion in adult patients with longstanding traumatic brachial plexus injuries
In upper brachial plexus injuries
loss of elbow flexion, shoulder abduction and external rotation are the main functional deficits to be addressed.
10 Approximately 90% of brachial plexus injuries
recover spontaneously, as was also seen in this study.
All three men suffered for many years with brachial plexus injuries
 and poor hand function as a result of motor vehicle and climbing accidents.
The remaining 42 had upper plexus brachial plexus injuries
Delineating brachial plexus injuries
by salient feature is widely used in the medical literature and allows the clinician the flexibility to catalog the causes of brachial plexus palsy in manageable groups without having to rely on rigid but uncertain parameters such as time of occurrence and mechanism of injury.
Gurewitsch addressed the issue of brachial plexus injuries
caused by normal maternal expulsive forces during labor and opined that a permanent injury such as 'Zamarion's could not result from such forced and that no such case had been reported in medical literature.
In obstetric brachial plexus injuries
, most patients recover spontaneously without surgery.
History of Brachial Plexus Injuries
Addressing anatomy, etiology, evidence-based medical and surgical management, and application of occupational therapy, they first discuss orthopedics, and topics such as surgical principles, therapy and surgery for lower and upper limbs, spinal conditions, and pediatric conditions, then address aspects of trauma, including principles of fracture management, pelvic, hand, and brachial plexus injuries
, and traumatic amputation.
However, approximately 54 percent of all brachial plexus injuries
may occur without any known explanation.
Upper plexus injuries tend to be the least severe and have the best prognosis among brachial plexus injuries
1-3 A 35-year-old man presented with bilateral anterior dislocation of the shoulder (BADS) with bilateral brachial plexus injuries
following a nightmare.
