Brachial Plexus Neuropathies: Diseases of the cervical (and first thoracic) roots, nerve trunks, cords, and peripheral nerve components of the BRACHIAL PLEXUS. Clinical manifestations include regional pain, PARESTHESIA; MUSCLE WEAKNESS, and decreased sensation (HYPESTHESIA) in the upper extremity. These disorders may be associated with trauma (including BIRTH INJURIES); THORACIC OUTLET SYNDROME; NEOPLASMS; NEURITIS; RADIOTHERAPY; and other conditions. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1351-2)Brachial Plexus Neuritis: A syndrome associated with inflammation of the BRACHIAL PLEXUS. Clinical features include severe pain in the shoulder region which may be accompanied by MUSCLE WEAKNESS and loss of sensation in the upper extremity. This condition may be associated with VIRUS DISEASES; IMMUNIZATION; SURGERY; heroin use (see HEROIN DEPENDENCE); and other conditions. The term brachial neuralgia generally refers to pain associated with brachial plexus injury. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1355-6)Brachial Plexus: The large network of nerve fibers which distributes the innervation of the upper extremity. The brachial plexus extends from the neck into the axilla. In humans, the nerves of the plexus usually originate from the lower cervical and the first thoracic spinal cord segments (C5-C8 and T1), but variations are not uncommon.Ulnar Nerve Compression Syndromes: Ulnar neuropathies caused by mechanical compression of the nerve at any location from its origin at the BRACHIAL PLEXUS to its terminations in the hand. Common sites of compression include the retroepicondylar groove, cubital tunnel at the elbow (CUBITAL TUNNEL SYNDROME), and Guyon's canal at the wrist. Clinical features depend on the site of injury, but may include weakness or paralysis of wrist flexion, finger flexion, and ulnar innervated intrinsic hand muscles, and impaired sensation over the ulnar aspect of the hand, fifth finger, and ulnar half of the ring finger. (Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p43)Birth Injuries: Mechanical or anoxic trauma incurred by the infant during labor or delivery.Choroid Plexus: A villous structure of tangled masses of BLOOD VESSELS contained within the third, lateral, and fourth ventricles of the BRAIN. It regulates part of the production and composition of CEREBROSPINAL FLUID.Paralysis, Obstetric: Paralysis of an infant resulting from injury received at birth. (From Dorland, 27th ed)Diabetic Neuropathies: Peripheral, autonomic, and cranial nerve disorders that are associated with DIABETES MELLITUS. These conditions usually result from diabetic microvascular injury involving small blood vessels that supply nerves (VASA NERVORUM). Relatively common conditions which may be associated with diabetic neuropathy include third nerve palsy (see OCULOMOTOR NERVE DISEASES); MONONEUROPATHY; mononeuropathy multiplex; diabetic amyotrophy; a painful POLYNEUROPATHY; autonomic neuropathy; and thoracoabdominal neuropathy. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1325)Nerve Block: Interruption of NEURAL CONDUCTION in peripheral nerves or nerve trunks by the injection of a local anesthetic agent (e.g., LIDOCAINE; PHENOL; BOTULINUM TOXINS) to manage or treat pain.Musculocutaneous Nerve: A major nerve of the upper extremity. The fibers of the musculocutaneous nerve originate in the lower cervical spinal cord (usually C5 to C7), travel via the lateral cord of the brachial plexus, and supply sensory and motor innervation to the upper arm, elbow, and forearm.Nerve Transfer: Surgical reinnervation of a denervated peripheral target using a healthy donor nerve and/or its proximal stump. The direct connection is usually made to a healthy postlesional distal portion of a non-functioning nerve or implanted directly into denervated muscle or insensitive skin. Nerve sprouts will grow from the transferred nerve into the denervated elements and establish contact between them and the neurons that formerly controlled another area.Peripheral Nervous System Diseases: Diseases of the peripheral nerves external to the brain and spinal cord, which includes diseases of the nerve roots, ganglia, plexi, autonomic nerves, sensory nerves, and motor nerves.Cervical Plexus: A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four CERVICAL SPINAL CORD segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head. It also distributes motor fibers to muscles of the cervical SPINAL COLUMN, infrahyoid muscles, and the DIAPHRAGM.Paralysis: A general term most often used to describe severe or complete loss of muscle strength due to motor system disease from the level of the cerebral cortex to the muscle fiber. This term may also occasionally refer to a loss of sensory function. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p45)Myenteric Plexus: One of two ganglionated neural networks which together form the ENTERIC NERVOUS SYSTEM. The myenteric (Auerbach's) plexus is located between the longitudinal and circular muscle layers of the gut. Its neurons project to the circular muscle, to other myenteric ganglia, to submucosal ganglia, or directly to the epithelium, and play an important role in regulating and patterning gut motility. (From FASEB J 1989;3:127-38)Intercostal Nerves: The ventral rami of the thoracic nerves from segments T1 through T11. The intercostal nerves supply motor and sensory innervation to the thorax and abdomen. The skin and muscles supplied by a given pair are called, respectively, a dermatome and a myotome.Thoracic Outlet Syndrome: A neurovascular syndrome associated with compression of the BRACHIAL PLEXUS; SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY; and SUBCLAVIAN VEIN at the superior thoracic outlet. This may result from a variety of anomalies such as a CERVICAL RIB, anomalous fascial bands, and abnormalities of the origin or insertion of the anterior or medial scalene muscles. Clinical features may include pain in the shoulder and neck region which radiates into the arm, PARESIS or PARALYSIS of brachial plexus innervated muscles, PARESTHESIA, loss of sensation, reduction of arterial pulses in the affected extremity, ISCHEMIA, and EDEMA. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp214-5).Shoulder Joint: The articulation between the head of the HUMERUS and the glenoid cavity of the SCAPULA.Sural Nerve: A branch of the tibial nerve which supplies sensory innervation to parts of the lower leg and foot.Neurosurgery: A surgical specialty concerned with the treatment of diseases and disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral and sympathetic nervous system.Neurology: A medical specialty concerned with the study of the structures, functions, and diseases of the nervous system.Motor Neuron Disease: Diseases characterized by a selective degeneration of the motor neurons of the spinal cord, brainstem, or motor cortex. Clinical subtypes are distinguished by the major site of degeneration. In AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS there is involvement of upper, lower, and brainstem motor neurons. In progressive muscular atrophy and related syndromes (see MUSCULAR ATROPHY, SPINAL) the motor neurons in the spinal cord are primarily affected. With progressive bulbar palsy (BULBAR PALSY, PROGRESSIVE), the initial degeneration occurs in the brainstem. In primary lateral sclerosis, the cortical neurons are affected in isolation. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1089)Neural Conduction: The propagation of the NERVE IMPULSE along the nerve away from the site of an excitation stimulus.Polyneuropathies: Diseases of multiple peripheral nerves simultaneously. Polyneuropathies usually are characterized by symmetrical, bilateral distal motor and sensory impairment with a graded increase in severity distally. The pathological processes affecting peripheral nerves include degeneration of the axon, myelin or both. The various forms of polyneuropathy are categorized by the type of nerve affected (e.g., sensory, motor, or autonomic), by the distribution of nerve injury (e.g., distal vs. proximal), by nerve component primarily affected (e.g., demyelinating vs. axonal), by etiology, or by pattern of inheritance.Immunoglobulins, Intravenous: Immunoglobulin preparations used in intravenous infusion, containing primarily IMMUNOGLOBULIN G. They are used to treat a variety of diseases associated with decreased or abnormal immunoglobulin levels including pediatric AIDS; primary HYPERGAMMAGLOBULINEMIA; SCID; CYTOMEGALOVIRUS infections in transplant recipients, LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA, CHRONIC; Kawasaki syndrome, infection in neonates, and IDIOPATHIC THROMBOCYTOPENIC PURPURA.Autoimmune Diseases of the Nervous System: Disorders caused by cellular or humoral immune responses primarily directed towards nervous system autoantigens. The immune response may be directed towards specific tissue components (e.g., myelin) and may be limited to the central nervous system (e.g., MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS) or the peripheral nervous system (e.g., GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME).Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease: A hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy transmitted most often as an autosomal dominant trait and characterized by progressive distal wasting and loss of reflexes in the muscles of the legs (and occasionally involving the arms). Onset is usually in the second to fourth decade of life. This condition has been divided into two subtypes, hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy (HMSN) types I and II. HMSN I is associated with abnormal nerve conduction velocities and nerve hypertrophy, features not seen in HMSN II. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1343)G(M1) Ganglioside: A specific monosialoganglioside that accumulates abnormally within the nervous system due to a deficiency of GM1-b-galactosidase, resulting in GM1 gangliosidosis.Nephrostomy, Percutaneous: The insertion of a catheter through the skin and body wall into the kidney pelvis, mainly to provide urine drainage where the ureter is not functional. It is used also to remove or dissolve renal calculi and to diagnose ureteral obstruction.Ureteral Calculi: Stones in the URETER that are formed in the KIDNEY. They are rarely more than 5 mm in diameter for larger renal stones cannot enter ureters. They are often lodged at the ureteral narrowing and can cause excruciating renal colic.Lithotripsy: The destruction of a calculus of the kidney, ureter, bladder, or gallbladder by physical forces, including crushing with a lithotriptor through a catheter. Focused percutaneous ultrasound and focused hydraulic shock waves may be used without surgery. Lithotripsy does not include the dissolving of stones by acids or litholysis. Lithotripsy by laser is LITHOTRIPSY, LASER.Preoperative Care: Care given during the period prior to undergoing surgery when psychological and physical preparations are made according to the special needs of the individual patient. This period spans the time between admission to the hospital to the time the surgery begins. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)Ureteroscopy: Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the ureter.Blood Urea Nitrogen: The urea concentration of the blood stated in terms of nitrogen content. Serum (plasma) urea nitrogen is approximately 12% higher than blood urea nitrogen concentration because of the greater protein content of red blood cells. Increases in blood or serum urea nitrogen are referred to as azotemia and may have prerenal, renal, or postrenal causes. (From Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984)Upper Extremity: The region of the upper limb in animals, extending from the deltoid region to the HAND, and including the ARM; AXILLA; and SHOULDER.Cervical Vertebrae: The first seven VERTEBRAE of the SPINAL COLUMN, which correspond to the VERTEBRAE of the NECK.Intervertebral Disc: Any of the 23 plates of fibrocartilage found between the bodies of adjacent VERTEBRAE.Diskectomy: Excision, in part or whole, of an INTERVERTEBRAL DISC. The most common indication is disk displacement or herniation. In addition to standard surgical removal, it can be performed by percutaneous diskectomy (DISKECTOMY, PERCUTANEOUS) or by laparoscopic diskectomy, the former being the more common.Intervertebral Disc Displacement: An INTERVERTEBRAL DISC in which the nucleus pulposus has protruded through surrounding fibrocartilage. This occurs most frequently in the lower lumbar region.Spinal Fusion: Operative immobilization or ankylosis of two or more vertebrae by fusion of the vertebral bodies with a short bone graft or often with diskectomy or laminectomy. (From Blauvelt & Nelson, A Manual of Orthopaedic Terminology, 5th ed, p236; Dorland, 28th ed)EuropeArthrodesis: The surgical fixation of a joint by a procedure designed to accomplish fusion of the joint surfaces by promoting the proliferation of bone cells. (Dorland, 28th ed)Blogging: Using an INTERNET based personal journal which may consist of reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks.Cannabis: The plant genus in the Cannabaceae plant family, Urticales order, Hamamelidae subclass. The flowering tops are called many slang terms including pot, marijuana, hashish, bhang, and ganja. The stem is an important source of hemp fiber.Biological Products: Complex pharmaceutical substances, preparations, or matter derived from organisms usually obtained by biological methods or assay.Access to Information: Individual's rights to obtain and use information collected or generated by others.Marijuana Abuse: The excessive use of marijuana with associated psychological symptoms and impairment in social or occupational functioning.Health Resources: Available manpower, facilities, revenue, equipment, and supplies to produce requisite health care and services.Materia Medica: Materials or substances used in the composition of traditional medical remedies. The use of this term in MeSH was formerly restricted to historical articles or those concerned with traditional medicine, but it can also refer to homeopathic remedies. Nosodes are specific types of homeopathic remedies prepared from causal agents or disease products.Cubital Tunnel Syndrome: Compression of the ULNAR NERVE in the cubital tunnel, which is formed by the two heads of the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle, humeral-ulnar aponeurosis, and medial ligaments of the elbow. This condition may follow trauma or occur in association with processes which produce nerve enlargement or narrowing of the canal. Manifestations include elbow pain and PARESTHESIA radiating distally, weakness of ulnar innervated intrinsic hand muscles, and loss of sensation over the hypothenar region, fifth finger, and ulnar aspect of the ring finger. (Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p43)Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome: Entrapment of the distal branches of the posterior TIBIAL NERVE (which divides into the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcanial nerves) in the tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the internal malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles of the foot. Symptoms include ankle pain radiating into the foot which tends to be aggravated by walking. Examination may reveal Tinel's sign (radiating pain following nerve percussion) over the tibial nerve at the ankle, weakness and atrophy of the small foot muscles, or loss of sensation in the foot. (From Foot Ankle 1990;11(1):47-52)Musculoskeletal Abnormalities: Congenital structural abnormalities and deformities of the musculoskeletal system.Complex Regional Pain Syndromes: Conditions characterized by pain involving an extremity or other body region, HYPERESTHESIA, and localized autonomic dysfunction following injury to soft tissue or nerve. The pain is usually associated with ERYTHEMA; SKIN TEMPERATURE changes, abnormal sudomotor activity (i.e., changes in sweating due to altered sympathetic innervation) or edema. The degree of pain and other manifestations is out of proportion to that expected from the inciting event. Two subtypes of this condition have been described: type I; (REFLEX SYMPATHETIC DYSTROPHY) and type II; (CAUSALGIA). (From Pain 1995 Oct;63(1):127-33)Amputation Stumps: The part of a limb or tail following amputation that is proximal to the amputated section.

The exacerbating effect of insulin-induced hypoglycemia on spontaneous peripheral neuropathy in aged B6C3F1 mice. (1/102)

The effect of insulin-induced hypoglycemia on spontaneous peripheral neuropathy in aged mice was examined. Ninety-five-week-old female B6C3F1 mice were infused subcutaneously for 2 weeks with 40 or 80 IU/kg/day of insulin with a micro osmotic pump. Blood glucose level was decreased during the infusion (4.3-6.8 mmol/L in mice receiving 40 IU/kg/day of insulin or 2.4-5.4 mmol/L in mice receiving 80 IU/kg/day of insulin versus 6.5-7.6 mmol/L in control mice). In histopathological examination, axonal degeneration and/or remyelination were observed in a small number of nerve fibers of control mice. Similar nerve fiber lesions were observed in mice receiving 40 IU/kg/day of insulin, whereas severer lesions with an increase in segmental axonal degeneration of nerve fibers were observed in 4/7 mice receiving 80 IU/kg/day of insulin. These findings suggest that spontaneous peripheral neuropathy in aged mice is exacerbated by sustained hypoglycemia induced by insulin treatment.  (+info)

Scapulothoracic stabilisation for winging of the scapula using strips of autogenous fascia lata. (2/102)

We have used a modified technique in five patients to correct winging of the scapula caused by injury to the brachial plexus or the long thoracic nerve during transaxillary resection of the first rib. The procedure stabilises the scapulothoracic articulation by using strips of autogenous fascia lata wrapped around the 4th, 6th and 7th ribs at least two, and preferably three, times. The mean age of the patients at the time of operation was 38 years (26 to 47) and the mean follow-up six years and four months (three years and three months to 11 years). Satisfactory stability was achieved in all patients with considerable improvement in shoulder function. There were no complications.  (+info)

Function of the upper limb after surgery for obstetric brachial plexus palsy. (3/102)

We reviewed a consecutive series of 33 infants who underwent surgery for obstetric brachial plexus palsy at a mean age of 4.7 months. Of these, 13 with an upper palsy and 20 with a total palsy were treated by nerve reconstruction. Ten were treated by muscle transfer to the shoulder or elbow, and 16 by tendon transfer to the hand. The mean postoperative follow-up was 4 years 8 months. Ten of the 13 children (70%) with an upper palsy regained useful shoulder function and 11 (75%) useful elbow function. Of the 20 children with a total palsy, four (20%) regained useful shoulder function and seven (35%) useful elbow function. Most patients with a total palsy had satisfactory sensation of the hand, but only those with some preoperative hand movement regained satisfactory grasp. The ability to incorporate the palsied arm and hand into a co-ordinated movement pattern correlated with the sensation and prehension of the hand, but not with shoulder and elbow function.  (+info)

Restoration of sensory function and lack of long-term chronic pain syndromes after brachial plexus injury in human neonates. (4/102)

Obstetric complications are a common cause of brachial plexus injuries in neonates. Failure to restore sensation leads to trophic injuries and poor limb function. It is not known whether the infant suffers chronic neuropathic or spinal cord root avulsion pain; in adults, chronic pain is usual after spinal root avulsion injuries, and this is often intractable. The plexus is repaired surgically in severe neonatal injures; if no spontaneous recovery has occurred by 3 months, and if neurophysiological investigations point to poor prognosis, then nerve trunk injures are grafted, while spinal cord root avulsion injuries are treated by transferring an intact neighbouring nerve (e.g. intercostal) to the distal stump of the damaged nerve, in an attempt to restore sensorimotor function. Using a range of non-invasive quantitative measures validated in adults, including mechanical, thermal and vibration perception thresholds, we have assessed for the first time sensory and cholinergic sympathetic function in 24 patients aged between 3 and 23 years, who had suffered severe brachial plexus injury at birth. While recovery of function after spinal root avulsion was related demonstrably to surgery, there were remarkable differences from adults, including excellent restoration of sensory function (to normal limits in all dermatomes for at least one modality in 16 out of 20 operated cases), and evidence of exquisite CNS plasticity, i.e. perfect localization of restored sensation in avulsed spinal root dermatomes, now presumably routed via nerves that had been transferred from a distant spinal region. Sensory recovery exceeded motor or cholinergic sympathetic recovery. There was no evidence of chronic pain behaviour or neuropathic syndromes, although pain was reported normally to external stimuli in unaffected regions. We propose that differences in neonates are related to later maturation of injured fibres, and that CNS plasticity may account for their lack of long-term chronic pain after spinal root avulsion injury.  (+info)

Ultrasound diagnosis of shoulder congruity in chronic obstetric brachial plexus palsy. (5/102)

Ultrasound (US) was used to determine the congruity of the shoulder in 22 children with a deformity of the shoulder secondary to chronic obstetric brachial plexus palsy. There were 11 boys and 11 girls with a mean age of 4.75 years (0.83 to 13.92). The shoulder was scanned in the axial plane using a posterior approach with the arm internally rotated. The humeral head was classified as being either congruent or incongruent. The US appearance was compared with that on clinical examination and related to the intraoperative findings. All 17 shoulders diagnosed as incongruent on US were found to be incongruent at operation, whereas three diagnosed as congruent by US were found to be incongruent at operation. The diagnostic accuracy of US for the identification of shoulder incongruity was 82% when compared with the findings at surgery. US is a valuable, but not infallible tool, for the detection of incongruity of the shoulder.  (+info)

A case of multiple schwannomas of the trigeminal nerves, acoustic nerves, lower cranial nerves, brachial plexuses and spinal canal: schwannomatosis or neurofibromatosis? (6/102)

In most cases, while schwannoma is sporadically manifested as a single benign neoplasm, the presence of multiple schwannomas in one patient is usually indicative of neurofibromatosis 2. However, several recent reports have suggested that schwannomatosis itself may also be a distinct clinical entity. This study examines an extremely rare case of probable schwannomatosis associated with intracranial, intraspinal and peripheral involvements. A 63-year-old woman presented with a seven-year history of palpable lumps on both sides of the supraclavicular area and hearing impairment in both ears. On physical examination, no skin manifestations were evident. Facial sensory change, deafness in the left ear and decreased gag reflex were revealed by neurological examination. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed multiple lesions of the trigeminal nerves, acoustic nerves, lower cranial nerves, spinal accessory nerve, brachial plexuses, and spinal nerves. Pathological examination of tumors from the bilateral brachial plexuses, the spinal nerve in the T8 spinal position and the neck mass revealed benign schwannomas. Following is this patient case report of multiple schwannomas presenting with no skin manifestations of neurofibromatosis.  (+info)

Cervico thoracic junction spinal tuberculosis presenting as radiculopathy. (7/102)

A case of cervico thoracic junctional area spinal tuberculosis presenting as painful radiculitis of the upper extremity is reported. The predominant symptom of radicular pain and muscle weakness in the hand, along with a claw deformity, led to considerable delay in diagnosis. The presence of advanced bone destruction with severe instability was demonstrated on the MRI scan done later. Surgical management by radical anterior debridement and fusion, along with chemotherapy, led to resolution of the upper extremity symptoms. The brachial plexus radiculopathy secondary to tuberculosis has not been reported. The absence of myelopathic signs even in the presence of advanced bone destruction, thecal compression and instability is uncommon in adults.  (+info)

Retroversion of the humeral head in children with an obstetric brachial plexus lesion. (8/102)

We undertook a prospective MRI study to measure the retroversion of the humeral head in 33 consecutive infants with a mean age of 1 year 10 months (3 months to 7 years 4 months) who had an obstetric brachial plexus lesion (OBPL). According to a standardised MRI protocol both shoulders and humeral condyles were examined and the shape of the glenoid and humeral retroversion determined. The mean humeral retroversion of the affected shoulder was significantly increased compared with the normal contralateral side (-28.4 +/- 12.5 degrees v -21.5 +/- 15.1 degrees, p = 0.02). This increase was found only in the children over the age of 12 months. In this group humeral retroversion was -29.9 +/- 12.9 degrees compared with -19.6 +/- 15.6 degrees in the normal shoulder (p = 0.009), giving a mean difference of 10.3 degrees (95% confidence interval 3.3 to 17.3). This finding is of importance when considering the operative treatment for subluxation of the shoulder in children with an OBPL.  (+info)

There is limited information on the underlying pathological alterations in HBPN. Upper extremity nerve biopsies are not reported. Bradley et al, studying recurrent brachial plexus neuropathy, found focal sausage shaped thickenings of reduplicated myelin (tomaculi) in sural nerve biopsies from two patients with lower extremity involvement and a family history.14 Our patients did not have tomaculi or deletion of 17p11.2, the genetic alteration seen in HNPP (tomaculous neuropathy) (tables 1 and 2). The prominent perivascular epineurial inflammatory infiltrate observed in two of our four patients has also been described in non-inherited immune brachial plexus neuropathy.2,3,4 The severity and the epineurial, perivascular, and vascular wall localisation of the inflammation makes it unlikely that the inflammation is a reaction to fibre degeneration. Two of our patients with HBPN had prominent axonal degeneration, while those without inflammation had minimal or no neuropathic changes. The absence of ...
Facial nerve paralysis and partial brachial plexopathy after epidural blood patch: a case report and review of the literature Radi Shahien, Abdalla BowirratDepartment of Neurology, Ziv Medical Center, Zfat, IsraelAbstract: We report a complication related to epidural analgesia for delivery in a 24-year-old woman who was admitted with mild pre-eclampsia and for induction of labor. At the first postpartum day she developed a postdural puncture headache, which was unresponsive to conservative measures. On the fifth day an epidural blood patch was done, and her headache subsided. Sixteen hours later she developed paralysis of the right facial nerve, which was treated with prednisone. Seven days later she complained of pain in the left arm and the posterior region of the shoulder. She was later admitted and diagnosed with partial brachial plexopathy.Keywords: facial nerve paralysis, partial brachial plexopathy, epidural blood patch

The evaluation protocol included power assessment of several muscle groups using a modified Medical Research Council (MRC) motor scale, including elbow flexion. The difference between grades 3, 4, and 5 was based on range of motion (3: less than 50%, 4: more than 50%, 5: no asymmetry). We evaluated elbow flexion at six months of age and correlated that with thumb pain sensation during the first two months of age. Patients with less than antigravity elbow flexion at six months of age were considered to have a poor outcome. Statistic analysis was performed using Chi-square test. We calculated sensitivity and specificity of absent thumb pain sensation for predicting a poor outcome. We also calculated the relative risk of a patient with absent finger pain sensation for a poor outcome, including the 95% confidence interval. RESULTS. Sensory testing could be done in all 131 patients. Thumb pain sensation was normal in 101 patients (77%) and absent in 30 (23%). Patients with absent thumb pain sensation ...

First of all, thank you for your kind condolences. Yes, my brother was fit, lean and vibrant when he went in for a tetanus shot. (I understand that those are now given in TDap.) Within days of the shot, he felt weakness come over him, and as it became worse he went back to the doctor and was subsequently diagnosed with ALS. I had already done research and was aware of a 1967 BMJ article reporting vaccines of all kinds, plus tetanus shots and gamma globulin shots causing various auto-immune diseases, although the main focus was on multiple sclerosis. A friend of mine also had a severe reaction to a gamma globulin shot and was then diagnosed with MS, back in 1975.

05/31/2013 // Concord, CA, USA // LifeCare123 // Greg Vigna, MD, JD, Joe Motta, JD // (press release). Life Care Solutions Group Medical Perspective on Brachial Plexus Injuries:. Motor vehicle accidents are the most frequent cause of brachial plexus injuries with .67% of motor vehicle accident victims admitted to acute care hospitals suffering from brachial plexus injuries. These serious injuries from car accidents involve high force and velocity which causes multiple associated injuries including TBI with 72% having some loss of consciousness and 19% of victims in coma, cervical spine fractures in 13%, and shoulder injuries in 20%.. From my experience, says Greg Vigna MD/JD, diagnosis is fairly straightforward in the acutely injured cognitively intact patient. There will usually be markedly asymmetric finding of weakness involving the proximal or distal upper extremity. Diagnosis may be delayed by the presence of associated injuries that cause loss of function of the upper extremity including ...

The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that conducts signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand. Brachial plexus injuries are caused by damage to those nerves. Erb-Duchenne (Erbs) palsy refers to paralysis of the upper brachial plexus. Dejerine-Klumpke (Klumpkes) palsy refers to paralysis of the lower brachial plexus. Although injuries can occur at any time, many brachial plexus injuries happen when a babys shoulders become impacted during delivery and the brachial plexus nerves stretch or tear. There are four types of brachial plexus injuries: avulsion, the most severe type, in which the nerve is torn from the spine; rupture, in which the nerve is torn but not at the spinal attachment; neuroma, in which the nerve has torn and healed but scar tissue puts pressure on the injured nerve and prevents it from conducting signals to the muscles; and neuropraxia or stretch, in which the nerve has been damaged but not torn. Neuropraxia is the most common type of brachial plexus injury. ...
Brachial plexus lesions as a consequence of carrying a heavy backpack have been reported, but the typical clinical course and long-term consequences are not clear. Here we evaluated the clinical course and pattern of recovery of backpack palsy (BPP) in a large series of patients. Thirty-eight consecutive patients with idiopathic BPP were identified from our population of 193,450 Finnish conscripts by means of computerised register. A physiotherapist provided instructions for proper hand use and rehabilitative exercises at disease onset. The patients were followed up for 2 to 8 years from the diagnosis. We also searched for genetic markers of hereditary neuropathy with pressure palsies. Mann-Whitney U-test was used to analyze continuous data. The Fischers exact test was used to assess two-way tables. Eighty percent of the patients recovered totally within 9 months after the onset of weakness. Prolonged symptoms occurred in 15% of the patients, but daily activities were not affected. The weight of the

The brachial plexus is responsible for the innervation of the shoulder, upper extremity and upper thoracic muscles. In the cervicothoracobrachial region, it courses superior and posterior to the subclavian artery and vein. The brachial plexus consists of 5 segments: roots, trunks, divisions, cords and terminal branches. The supraclavicular plexus includes roots and trunks. The roots of the plexus are formed by the anterior rami of the C5-T1 nerve, with or without minor branches from C4 and T2. Through the neural foramina, roots of the plexus extend into the interscalene region, forming the superior (C5- C6), middle (C7) and inferior (C8-T1) trunks. The retroclavicular plexus includes the anterior and posterior division of the trunks. The infraclavicular plexus, situated in the retropectoralis minor space, includes the three cords (medial, lateral and posterior) and the terminal branches of the plexus (median, ulnar, musculocutaneous, axillary and radial nerves ...

The H reflex was investigated to determine if it can be useful in the prognosis of obstetrical brachial plexus palsies. The H reflex is an electrically stimulated monosynaptic or oligosynaptic response which can be recorded in peripheral nerves in all muscles of infants up to approximately two years of age. It is essentially the electrophysiologic counterpart of the deep tendon reflex, and its presence indicates intact afferent and efferent axons at the particular spinal segment. Our objectives were to document the Brachioradialis H (Br H) reflex latency and amplitude in normal upper extremities of infants, to evaluate the presence or absence of the Br H reflex in obstetrical palsy neonates and infants between one and seven months of age and to determine if this test was a valid predictor of final clinical outcome ...

Additional testing may be indicated in patients with a differential diagnosis which includes peripheral neuropathy, cervical radiculopathy, brachial plexopathy, or more proximal median neuropathy.. Radiculopathy. A minimal evaluation for radiculopathy includes 1 motor and 1 sensory NCS and a needle EMG examination of the involved limb. However, the EDX testing can include up to 3 motor NCSs (in cases of an abnormal motor NCS, the same nerve in the contralateral limb and another motor nerve in the ipsilateral limb can be studied) and 2 sensory NCSs. Bilateral studies are often necessary to exclude a central disc herniation with bilateral radiculopathies or spinal stenosis or to differentiate between radiculopathy and plexopathy, polyneuropathy, or mononeuropathy. H reflexes and F waves can provide useful complementary information that is helpful in the evaluation of suspected radiculopathy and can add to the certainty of electrodiagnostic information supporting a diagnosis of root ...

METHODS: Twenty pediatric patients (under age 20 yr) who had sustained a traumatic brachial plexus injury were compared against 20 patients, 20 to 29 yr old, and 20 patients, 30 yr old or older ...
Ever notice that you are slumped over or your posture doesnt seem right? Well, this happens when your alignment is out of whack, creating muscles imbalances. The technical way to define a muscle imbalance would be as an alteration of muscle length surrounding a joint. However, for terms that are better understood a muscle imbalance occurs when one muscle is stronger than its opposing muscle causing compensations to occur.. Why do these occur? There are many reasons that muscles imbalances occur one significant factor is our constant overuse of certain muscles especially in a sport like sailing. For example, in sailing with hiking you are using a lot of core muscles during this action, and your shoulder muscles arent used as much. So after a long season of sailing, you could develop upper crossed syndrome which is characterized by a forward head and rounded shoulders. By knowing what muscles imbalances we have and using corrective exercises we can prevent any injuries that could occur and ...
Lumbosacral plexopathy can result when radiation, used in the treatment of various neoplasms, is directed toward management of abdominal and pelvic malignancies. Anatomically, the lumbosacral plexus consists of lumbar (L1-L4) and sacral (L5-S5) portions, which are connected by the lumbosacral trunk (L4-L5).

Ive been experiencing pain down my right arm, elbow, wrist, hand and fingers for 36 years or the entire time Ive had a SCI. Ive also had a brachial plexus injury on the right upper extremity as well. Either the pain has increased or I am less tolerant so I went to see a pain Dr. at Mass. General in Boston. He seemed alright and prescribed Neurontin! 300mg, 3 x day. Ive only been on it for about 10 days but Ive neither experienced any reduction in pain nor any of the potential side

Pain, motor, and sensory deficits characterize patients with a traumatic lesion of the brachial plexus. Frequently, more severe injuries co-exist that require immediate surgical attention. Early rehabilitation and physical therapy are the cornerstones of treatment. Pharmacological management can be difficult. Surgical reconstruction is frequently advised when nerves are disrupted. The results, mostly from small historical reports, vary greatly. Neurostimulation may have an additional beneficial effect, especially if the pathophysiology of nociception and neuropathic pain becomes evident in these complex patients ...

Our approach is different. Perfect Postures provides you with the tools to heal yourself. We know there is a direct correlation between your pain and your bodys misalignments. How do we know this? We prove it every day by correcting our clients muscle imbalances and faulty joint mechanics. When we do this our clients feel better. The pain relief you will experience from our programs is simply a by-product of correcting your bodys alignment. Fix the misalignments and your pain will go away.. Pain does not dictate how we will handle someones conditions. Instead we evaluate our clients posture and identify muscle imbalances and skeletal misalignments. We make sure to not get caught in the all too common case of focusing and treating your area of pain like so many other therapies. Instead, we look at the actual cause of the pain. We then develop a corrective exercise routine to address the causes. Each one of our programs is case specific to the persons muscle imbalances and skeletal ...
SUMMARY. Acute dislocation of the knee is an uncommon but devastating injury. A high level of suspicion is needed in diagnosing it. Repeated neurovascular examinations are extremely important and even though it is wiser in our setting to do a routine angiogram, this is not a substitute for and does not exempt the patient from receiving a full neurovascular assessment. Outcome is better when the knees are treated surgically immediately if there is vascular compromise, with the remainder being treated before two weeks as soon as the soft tissues allow. Anatomical restitution of the injured structures is the surgical goal. Avoidance of chronic persistent posterior subluxation and a controlled rehabilitation programme will yield best results.. ...

Chicago injury lawyers at Levin & Perconti are very familiar with cases involving brachial plexus injuries. These injuries are some of the most common - June 7, 2011
It is estimated that as many as eight out of every 1,000 babies suffer brachial plexus birth injuries. Out of that number, the majority are caused by a birth complication called shoulder dystocia - a condition in which the babys head is delivered, but the shoulders get trapped behind the pubic bone. The injury occurs when the brachial plexus nerves on either side of the babys neck are stretched. In the most extreme case, an avulsion, the nerve is actually torn from the spinal cord, causing permanent neurological damage. Brachial plexus damage may lead to Erbs palsy, Klumkes palsy or Horners syndrome.. In fact, shoulder dystocia is not uncommon, and not every case of shoulder dystocia leads to a serious injury - provided the physician, midwife or nurse knows what to look for and how to proceed. But, what if, through negligence, carelessness or lack of proper training, the healthcare professional fails to note this medical emergency and follow the proper standards of care?. If your baby ...

The use of ultrasound in regional anesthesia enables reduction in the local anesthetic volume. The present study aimed to determine the minimum effective volume of 0.375% bupivacaine with epinephrine for interscalene brachial plexus block for shoulder surgery. Following approval by the Research Ethics Committee, patients with a physical condition of I or II according to the American Society of Anesthesiologists, between 21 and 65 years old and subjected to elective surgery of the shoulder and interscalene brachial plexus block will be recruited. The volume of the anesthetic will be determined using a step-up/step-down method and based on the outcome of the preceding block. Positive or negative block results in a 1mL reduction or increase in volume, respectively. The success of the block is defined as the presence of motor block in two muscle groups and the absence of thermal and pain sensations in the necessary dermatomes within 30 minutes of the injection.
