Abstract

The objective of this chapter is to describe and discuss the radiographic, intraoperative, and histologic findings that are present after brachial plexus birth injury. This review is based on the authors' clinical and operative experiences and a survey of the peer-reviewed literature. Together our findings provide evidence that in the vast majority of cases of brachial plexus birth palsy are secondary to a forceful traction injury affecting the brachial plexus that occurs when the child is born.
