Brachial Plexus Palsy occurs when the brachial plexus, a network of nerves, is damaged. Since the brachial plexus conducts signals from the spine to the arm and hand when it is damaged a limp arm can result. The brachial plexus is a network of nerves formed by fibers, which are located between the shoulder and the neck. Most often brachial plexus injuries happen during birth when excessive lateral traction is applied to the fetal neck region. In cases of brachial plexus palsy the upper part of the brachial plexus is involved. The brachial plexus palsy injuries are 90% of the time caused by traumatic stretching of the plexus during birth. Many babies with brachial plexus injuries are larger than average at birth, though any newborn can have this injury. Size alone does not determine if a baby will be born with brachial plexus palsy since newborns of any size can have these injures, including a premature baby. About 1 or 2 babies in 1,000 suffer brachial plexus injuries at birth, and about 1 in 10 of these babies need

Chapter 1: Anatomy of the Brachial Plexus
This book is a monograph about brachial plexus palsy. Severe brachial plexus injuries are often caused by traffic accidents, especially motorcycle accidents. The intercostal nerve transfer to the musculocutaneous nerve is a standard treatment of choice in Japan to reconstruct elbow flexion for brachial plexus palsy with root avulsion. The functional conversion of the nerve transfer is described in detail, using electrophysiological and histochemical studies. This book focuses on birth-related brachial plexus palsy as well as the treatment of brachial plexus injuries in adults.

Erbs Palsy Medical Malpractice
Erb's palsy, Brachial Plexus Palsy, or Shoulder Dystocia occurs when excessive lateral traction is applied to the fetal neck region during delivery. This can cause the baby's nerves to be torn, resulting in a limp arm. Tearing of these nerves can cause permanent paralysis of the arm. Proper detection and diagnosis are critical for effective treatment. If your loved one has been the victim of erb's palsy, please contact us now for help.

  • Introduction
    An injury to the brachial plexus can have a devastating effect on function of the hand and upper extremity. Traumatic brachial plexus injuries, such as occur in high speed motor vehicle or motorcycle injuries, tend to be complete, affecting the sensation and muscle power of nearly the entire upper limb. Brachial plexus palsies that occur at birth tend to be incomplete, affecting the shoulder and elbow more often than the hand. In either case, nerve recovery is unpredictable. Frequent and thorough examination for nerve recovery over the first 3 months of injury, usually accompanied by electrodiagnostic examination and imaging of the spinal cord, will help to determine the necessity of surgical intervention. Surgical Reconstruction
    In the 1960's surgery on brachial plexus injuries was felt to be fraught with difficulty and was generally unsuccessful. Recent advances in microsurgical nerve reconstruction have facilitated nerve repair, grafting and nerve transfer to restore function to an otherwise flail limb. Surgeons from the Yale Hand and Upper Extremity Surgical Team have been working with the Yale Neurosurgical staff for nearly a decade to reconstruct these difficult injuries. Surgery for nerve repair is ideally done within the first 3-6 months after acute injuries for optimal recovery. For those with chronic injuries, new techniques have enabled our surgeons to transfer working muscles from other parts of the body to restore lost elbow flexion and shoulder motion.

    Brachial Plexus Injuries Presently, brachial plexus and peripheral nerve injury is not well-understood in children. A multidisciplinary, comprehensive center for the study of brachial plexus and peripheral nerve injuries in the pediatric population places particular emphasis on children who suffer these types of injuries during the birth process or via other types of trauma. A regional, centralized comprehensive clinic offers the expertise in the evaluation and treatment for these children. Further programming through education and clinical and basic science research allows the center to be on the forefront in the understanding of the pathophysiologyof brachial plexus and peripheral nerve injuries and their treatment. To provide the highest level of expertise, the members of the multidisciplinary service include pediatric neurosurgery, plastic surgery/microsurgery, neurology, social work, radiology, trauma surgery, and physical and occupational therapy. The patients are evaluated by the combined disciplines and electrophysiologic evaluation and imaging (both anatomic and functional) are able to be coordinated through the resource centers for these modalities. Treatment options including surgical intervention or physical or occupational therapy is decided following a comprehensive review of the evaluative information amongst the members of the center using established principles.

    34. Erbs Palsy-Shoulder Dystocia Birth Injury Center - Types Of Erbs Palsy
    Complete brachial plexus palsy. Complete brachial plexus palsy occurswhen injury affects all five nerves in the brachial plexus.
    The process of pregnancy and childbirth is extremely complicated and complications are common. About 1 or 2 babies in 1,000 suffer Erbs Palsy injuries at birth. The symptoms of Erbs Palsy injury include a limp or paralyzed arm and/or lack of muscle control in the arm or hand.
    Erbs Palsy (Brachial Plexus and Shoulder Dystocia) is a condition that results from damage to the brachial plexus nerves. These are a series of nerves that travel from the spinal cord into the arm. The birth injury occurs when the delivering physician exerts excessive force on the baby's head and neck during a vaginal birth. Contact us if you and your baby have suffered. Complete Brachial Plexus Palsy Complete Brachial Plexus Palsy occurs when injury affects all five nerves in the brachial plexus. Complete Brachial Plexus Palsy results in paralysis and demonstrable sensory loss in the entire arm, from the shoulder down. In addition, Horner's Syndrome, which causes eyelid droop, undilated pupil, and dormancy of sweat glands in the cheek of the affected side of the body, often accompanies the injury. Torticollis, a condition that causes a baby to face toward his good or uninjured side and prevents a baby from being able to face forward for any length of time, also accompanies Complete Brachial Plexus Palsy. Erb's Palsy Erb's Palsy represents the paralysis of a group of muscles of the shoulder and upper arm. It involves the cervical roots of the fifth and sixth spinal nerves. The arm hangs limp, the hand may rotate inward and normal movements are lost. The elbow is extended but flexion of the wrist and fingers is preserved with the palm potentially facing up. Erb's Palsy sufferers commonly cannot lift their arm above the head and have difficulty gripping with the affected hand.

    Erbs Palsy/brachial plexus palsy that does not spontaneously heal canrequire exercise, therapy, and possibly surgery. In 80 percent
    Erbs Palsy/Brachial Plexus Palsy that does not spontaneously heal can require exercise, therapy, and possibly surgery. In 80 percent of the babies born with Brachial Plexus Palsy, recovery occurs without surgical intervention. Often times, though, the function of a child's arm can benefit from surgical procedures. Researchers find surgery most effective in children between the ages of 5 and 12 months that suffer from brachial plexus palsy. The surgery has been less effective in children over the age of one. The determination of whether or not to perform surgery depends on the individual child with brachial plexus palsy. The brachial plexus palsy surgical procedure requires a pediatric neurosurgeon, a special anesthesia, an operating microscope, monitoring equipment, and specialists to expose and identify each of the nerves of the brachial plexus and surrounding structures. Most children with brachial plexus palsy injury have damage to multiple nerves so more than one procedure must be performed. Younger children recover faster from brachial plexus palsy surgery. Injuries that involve nerves below the elbow have a lower rate of improvement because of the location of the nerves and the distance that they need to regenerate. A physical therapist may also work with children suffering from Brachial Plexus Palsy to help increase range of movement. Performing daily exercise to keep the muscle and joints limber and moving may also help Brachial Plexus Palsy, and may prevent the joints from freezing in place. If the child with brachial plexus palsy does not exercise and use the muscles in the arm and hand, the muscles will remain weak and may not grow normally. This may also lead to additional tightness in the muscles and joints.
