ratings and reviews)
The brachial plexus is a network of nerves, that conducts signals from the spinal cord, which is housed in the spinal canal of the vertebral column, to the shoulder, arms and hands. Injury to this can occur as a result of shoulder trauma, tumours or iflammation. The symptoms include:
1. A limp or paralyzed arm, lack of muscle control in the arm, hand or wrist
2. Lack of feeling or sensation in the arm or hand.
Infants may suffer brachial plexus injuries during delivery.
HOW IS BRACHIAL PLEXUS DIAGNOSED?
Injuries related to the brachial plexus can be diagnosed by physical examination. The doctor may also order for imaging tests like CT scan and MRI for evaluating the impact on the brachial plexus due to accident or sport injury. Injuries that occur during birth are diagnosed through imaging tests.
HOW IS BRACHIAL PLEXUS TREATED?
Many adult injuries will not recover on their own. Early evaluation by physicians who have experience in treating these problems is essential. Some injuries can recover with time and therapy. The time for recovery can be weeks or months. When an injury is unlikely to improve, several surgical techniques are used. In some cases when nerve recovery will not happen, tendon transfer surgery may be performed.
