What is Brachial Plexus Surgery ?

Brachial Plexus Surgery is a vital procedure for managing Brachial Plexus injuries, which impact the nerves transmitting signals to the upper limbs. Typically caused by high-impact trauma, such as road accidents or sports injuries, these injuries cause pain and hinder limb functionality.

What are the various types of Brachial Plexus Surgeries ?

There are six primary classifications for Brachial Plexus Surgeries:
Brachial Plexus Nerve Repair: A complex surgery that reconnects torn nerves using microscopic imaging guidance and specialized equipment.
Brachial Plexus Decompression and Neurolysis: This surgery alleviates pressure on compressed nerves caused by Brachial Plexus injuries.
Nerve Grafting Surgery for Brachial Plexus Injury: This procedure replaces severely damaged nerves in the arm/hand with healthy nerves from another part of the patient’s body.
Brachial Plexus Nerve Transfer Surgery: Nearby nerves are attached to the injured nerve to provide support and restore signal flow.
Tendon Transfer Surgery for Brachial Plexus Injury: Paralyzed tendons are replaced with functioning grafts to restore function post-injury.
Functional Muscle Transplant for Brachial Plexus Injury: Used when nerve repair and grafting are not options, this surgery restores movement and function from past Brachial Plexus injuries.

When is Brachial Plexus Surgery recommended ?

Brachial Plexus Surgery is recommended for patients with severe Brachial Plexus injuries, which include:

  • Severe tearing or stretching of nerves due to neck or shoulder trauma
  • Persistent and debilitating pain unresponsive to medication
  • Partial or complete loss of function
  • Neuromas resulting from nerve scarring
  • Nerve tumours involving the Brachial Plexus nerves
