  • Is microsurgical treatment of brachial plexus palsy better than conventional treatment? HAND CLINICS Hentz, V. R. 2007; 23 (1): 83-?


    There are some plexus injuries for which microneural plexus reconstruction provides the only good possibility of achieving useful limb function. These injuries include complete plexus palsies in the adult and baby, and incomplete upper plexus lesions in the adult. There are plexus injuries for which there is little to no role for microneurosurgery, such as the isolated C8, T1 injury in the adult (this is an extremely rare injury in babies). This article explores conventional versus microneurosurgical reconstruction for adult traumatic and birth-related brachial plexus palsies.
