Obstetric brachial plexus injuries and treatment between 0-2 years of age‚Ä®

Aydin Yuceturk.


Obstetrical brachial plexus injury treatment was debatable before 1980. In the last three decades, however, treatment options and techniques are progressed. With successful results increasing the overall success rate, today, treatment of these patients is routinely performed in many countries, including Turkey, since 1993. Surgical treatment of brachial plexus injuries is still progressing in correlation with nerve injury treatments, but there are still obstacles related to treatment of multiple root avulsions and restoring hand function. In general, when treating an injury is difficult, it is always better to take care to prevent it. This may be possible with education of the population, patients, doctors and the government. In this article, differential diagnosis, radiological examination and conservative and surgical treatment of obstetrical brachial plexus injuries in the first two years of the age are discussed.

Key words: Obstetric brachial plexus injury, treatment
