Medial brachial fascial compartment syndrome: RTW status should be determined only after maximum medical improvement. In post-ganglionic injury, it is prudent to wait for 3—4 months for spontaneous improvement to occur.
Outcomes and rehabilitation after surgery: Analysis of outcomes 10 years after trauma reveals that those with brachial plexus injury have lower rates of employment and worse outcome scores.
An integrated care team should include a physiatrist, neurologist, neurosurgeon, hand surgeon, occupational therapist, physical therapist, electrodiagnostician, pain specialist, and possibly an oncologist or pediatric neurologist. A recent publication about patient reported outcomes of health related quality of life after neonatal brachial plexus suggests that physical limitations, followed by social health, and to a lesser degree, emotional brachhial remain significant long-term issues in these patients.
Cervical rib and median sternotomy-related brachial plexopathies: Males are approximately two times more commonly affected than females Wikiquote 0 entries edit.
Functional capacity evaluation can be a useful tool to determine accurate restrictions and RTW.
Brachial plexopathies: classification, causes, and consequences.
Most stated that their brachial plexus injury had little or no role in their relationships. There are no required laboratory analyses in the work-up of brachial plexopathy however basic laboratory assessments may be consequrnces in ruling out alternative causes of weakness or in looking for triggers of NA. Mallow, MD Comments are off. Gaps in the evidence-based knowledge.

It is caused by narrowed thoracic outlet, possibly because of cervical rib likely a fibrous band running from a rudimentary cervical rib to the first thoracic rib or hypertrophied anterior scalene or ischemic injury caused by restricted flow through cobsequences subclavian artery.
Serial casting may initially improve more severe contractures and nighttime splinting may be effective in preventing contracture progression. Natural history of brachial plexus neuropathy.
Return to work RTW: Although the standard of care in managing traumatic brachial plexopathies is to delay nerve grafts for 3 to 6 months while monitoring for recovery, there is emerging evidence to suggest that delaying beyond 2 months might result in poor outcomes. The test is considered positive for TOS if it induces progressive pain in neck to shoulder to arm, paresthesias in the forearm or fingers, arm pallor when elevated and hyperemia when lowered vascular TOSor reproduction of the usual symptoms that involve the entire arm.
The number of fibrillation potentials and positive sharp waves on electromyography testing does not predict the severity of injury.
LAC, median thumb Middle trunk: March 7,1: The incidence of radiation-induced plexopathies has decreased with tissue-sparing targeted radiotherapy. There was also a significant correlation between the change in NRS scores and patient satisfaction.
Timing is a crucial factor in determining the outcome after surgery as the distal nerve and the neuromuscular junction become increasingly incapable of accepting reinnervation by 20—24 months. The patient is asked to open and close their hands repeatedly for 3 minutes. Primarily an iatrogenic complication at delivery, although there is some evidence for congenital brachial plexopathy related to in conseuqences fetal position.
Resources, including psychology, vocational rehabilitation, ergonomics, and driver plexoathies, can be included as necessary.
