All rights reserved Abstract Many patients with obstetrical brachial plexus palsy recover well spontaneously, while others require surgical intervention to achieve the best outcome. However, some patients do not meet any published criteria for nerve surgery, but have deficient shoulder external rotation, an important functional limitation. We report the operative management of five such patients. The surgery occurred at a mean age of In four patients, spinal accessory to suprascapular nerve transfer was performed, in one case with concomitant Botox injection of internal rotator muscles. A fifth patient underwent anatomical upper trunk reconstruction with sural nerve grafts.
Five of them worked on it at the same time, cutting away the mangled mask of scar tissue and preparing the underlying nerves, bones and blood vessels for something new — the face of a year-old brain-dead organ donor named Joshua. After the donor face was brought into the operating room, everything had to be lined up perfectly. The bones were set and fixed with little titanium plates and screws, and then the surgeons reconnected the arteries to get blood circulating to the tissue.
