About Brachial Plexus Surgery

What is Brachial Plexus Surgery?

Brachial PlexusThe brachial plexus is a network of nerves that gives shoulder, arm, and hand movement and feeling. The brachial plexus starts at the neck and reaches the armpit through the upper chest. Injury to this nerves network often happens when the arm is pulled or stretched by force. Without treatment, mild brachial plexus wounds can cure. More serious wounds may involve surgical procedures, Brachial plexus surgery, to regain arm or hand function.

Types of Brachial Plexus Injuries

  • Avulsion – Where a body structure is detached from its normal insertion point, either removed by trauma or cut off by surgery
  • Rupture – The nerve is torn, but not at the attachment to the spinal cord.
  • Neuroma – Scar tissue has been growing around the injury site, putting pressure on the injured nerve and preventing the nerve from sending muscle signals.
  • Neurapraxia – The nerve was stretched and damaged, but it was not torn.

Treatment for Brachial Plexus Surgery 

The surgeon makes an incision over the collarbone near the neck. If the wound extends down the brachial plexus, a further incision may be needed at the front of the shoulder. Often, doctors use high-powered microscopes and tiny, specific tools to repair or reconnect nerves.

Types of Surgery

  • Nerve graft – The damaged part of the brachial plexus is removed and replaced by sections of nerves harvested from other parts of the body in this procedure. This helps the patient to restore the function of the arm.
  • Nerve transfer – When the root of the nerve has been removed from the spinal cord, doctors often take a less important nerve that still works and attaches it to a more important but not functioning nerve.
  • Muscle transfer – Muscle transfer is a process in which a surgeon removes less important muscles or tendons from a different part of his or her body, generally from the thigh, transfers them to his or her arm, and reconnects the muscles nerves, and blood vessels.
