Abstract

Brachial plexus injuries have a steady occurrence in the pediatric population from a variety of sources. The various approaches taken to diagnosing and treating this injury have long been fraught with controversy. This has been compounded with advances in medical technology and surgical techniques. Our paper attempts to give a short discussion of the epidemiology of brachial plexus injuries and delineate the specific controversies that exist in diagnosis and treatment.
