In human anatomy, the cephalic vein is a superficial vein in the arm. It communicates with the basilic vein via the median cubital vein at the elbow and is located in the superficial fascia along the anterolateral surface of the biceps brachii muscle. Near the shoulder, the cephalic vein passes between the deltoid and pectoralis major muscles (deltopectoral groove) and through the deltopectoral triangle, where it empties into the axillary vein. The cephalic vein is often visible through the skin, and its location in the deltopectoral groove is fairly consistent, making this site a good candidate for venous access. Permanent pacemaker leads are often placed in the cephalic vein in the deltopectoral groove. The vein may be used for intravenous access, as large bore cannula may be easily placed. However, the cannulation of a vein as close to the radial nerve as the cephalic vein can sometimes lead to nerve damage. Ordinarily the term cephalic refers to anatomy of the head. When Persian ...

While it is beyond the scope of this short article to try to explore all aspects of the shoulder muscle activity, a few points can be made concerning the deltoids and rotator cuff muscles. The three major muscle fiber populations of the deltoid muscle (most often referred to as anterior, lateral and posterior heads; or front, side, and rear delts) are apparently each capable of contracting fairly independently of the other heads. In other words, bench presses can conceivably involve anterior fibers of the deltoids while the other two heads are largely inactive. It is, however, overly simplistic to view the activity of the deltoids only in this sense (by saying for example, that anterior deltoid lateral raises work only the anterior head of the deltoid, lateral raises work only the lateral head, etc.). What really happens is much more involved and probably not remotely as clear cut. Many muscles of the shoulder are involved in any shoulder exercise ...

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 ...
Birth related brachial plexus palsy refers to an injury occurring in the perinatal period to all or part of an infants brachial plexus (the network of nerves connecting your spine to your upper limbs). Birth related brachial plexus palsies can be defined as either Erbs palsies or Klumpkes palsies. Erbs palsies are injuries occurring in the upper brachial plexus, whereas Klumpkes palsies are injuries which occur in the lower brachial plexus. Various factors can increase an infants risk of suffering a brachial plexus palsy during childbirth. Improper, unskilled or negligent treatment by a medical professional can also cause an infant to suffer a brachial plexus palsy. ... ...
Was Your Childs Cerebral Palsy the Result of a Birth Injury? You may be eligible to receive compensation. Baltimore Injury Attorneys | Medical Malpractice
Not all birth injuries are the result of medical negligence or medical malpractice. Some brain injuries can still occur, even in the most competent and careful medical hands. However, medical professionals do make mistakes that can lead to severe injury, and sometimes even death of an infant. When this happens, it is important to consult with a team of knowledgeable legal professionals who understand the intricacies

In the United States, approximately 15 percent of children suffer from low or high-frequency hearing loss.[i] The most common type of hearing loss, especially at high frequencies, is sensorineural. Acquired sensorineural hearing loss results from damage to hair cells in the inner ear (cochlea) and can be caused by illness, medication, noise exposure, birth injury, or head trauma. A childs ability to hear affects the development of language skills, and hearing impairments can lead to poor academic and social development.[ii]. The groundbreaking phase 1 study has a primary objective of determining the safety of using cord blood stem cells in a select pediatric patient population while also assessing whether this approach to treatment improves inner ear function, speech, and language development. Researchers will follow 10 children, ranging in age from 6 weeks to 6 years, who have been diagnosed with acquired hearing loss for less than 18 months and who have their own cord ...

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 ...

A woman was admitted to the hospital for elective induction of labor. She gained a significant amount of weight while pregnant. During delivery, her family practitioner (FP) determined that vacuum extraction was needed but he was not qualified to use the device. An in-house ObGyn was called in to use the vacuum extractor. The FP delivered the babys shoulders. The infant was born with a floppy right arm and later diagnosed with rupture injuries to the C-5 and C-6 vertebrae and permanent brachial plexus damage. She has limited range of motion in her right arm and shoulder.. PARENTS CLAIM:. The FP was relatively inexperienced in labor and delivery. He should not have ordered vacuum extraction because of risk factors including the mothers small stature, her significant weight gain during pregnancy, the use of epidural anesthesia, and induction of labor. Using vacuum extraction increases the risk of shoulder dystocia.. The FP improperly applied excessive downward ...
Varying surgical techniques, patient groups and results have been described regards the surgical treatment of post traumatic flexion contracture of the elbow. We present our experience using the limited lateral approach on patients with carefully defined contracture types.Surgical release of post-traumatic flexion contracture of the elbow was performed in 23 patients via a limited lateral approach. All patients had an established flexion contracture with significant functional deficit. Contracture types were classified as either extrinsic if the contracture was not associated with damage to the joint surface or as intrinsic if it was.Overall, the mean pre-operative deformity was 55 degrees (95%CI 48-61) which was corrected at the time of surgery to 17 degrees (95%CI 12-22). At short-term follow-up (7.5 months) the mean residual deformity was 25 degrees (95%CI 19-30) and at medium-term follow-up (43 months) it was 32 degrees (95%CI 25-39). This deformity correction was significant (p | 0.01). One patient

The plexus extends out through the region of the shoulders and down both arms. The different components of the brachial plexus can be difficult to visualize due to their small size. These structures are easier to see on the colour enhanced version of this image (bb8204) where they have be colourized red. - Stock Image P340/0062
Klumpkes paralysis (or Klumpkes palsy or Dejerine-Klumpke palsy) is a variety of partial palsy of the lower roots of the brachial plexus. The brachial plexus is a network of spinal nerves that originates in the back of the neck, extends through the axilla (armpit), and gives rise to nerves to the upper limb. (see picture - click to enlarge). It is named after Augusta Déjerine-Klumpke. Symptoms include intrinsic minus hand deformity, paralysis of intrinsic hand muscles, and C8/T1 Dermatome distribution numbness. Involvement of T1 may result in Horners syndrome, with ptosis, and miosis. Weakness or lack of ability to use specific muscles of the shoulder or arm.It can be contrasted to Erb-Duchennes palsy, which affects C5 and C6. Klumpkes paralysis is a form of paralysis involving the muscles of the forearm and hand, resulting from a brachial plexus injury in which the eighth cervical (C8) and first thoracic (T1) nerves are injured either ...

Carvedilol is administered as a racemic mixture of the R(+)- and S(-)-enantiomers, although it was demonstrated that the two enantiomers exhibit different pharmacological effects and stereoselective pharmacokinetics. The aim of this study was the evaluation of several native and derivatized cyclodextrines as chiral selectors for the separation of carvedilol enantiomers. Stereoselective interactions were observed with four cyclodextrines (β-CD, hydroxypropyl-β-CD, randomly methylated β-CD and sulfobuthyl ether- β-CD). The effects of CD concentration, pH value and composition of the background electrolyte, capillary temperature, running voltage and injection parameters have been investigated. The method was validated for precision of peak-area response, linearity range and limits of detection and quantification. An efficient stereoselective capillary zone electrophoretic method was developed for the determination of carvedilol enantiomers using a simple 25 mM phosphate buffer ...

Background: During the past two decades there has been a sustained decline in child mortality; however, neonatal mortality has remained stagnant. Each year approximately 4 million babies are born asphyxiated resulting in 2 million neonatal deaths and intrapartum stillbirths. Almost all neonatal deaths occur in developing countries, where the majority is delivered at homes with negligible antenatal care and poor perinatal services. Objectives: To identify socio-demographic and clinical risk factors associated with birth asphyxia in Matiari District of Sindh Province, Pakistan. Method: A matched case control study was conducted in Matiari District with 246 cases and 492 controls. Newborn deaths with birth asphyxia diagnosed through verbal autopsy accreditation during 2005 and 2006 were taken as cases. Controls were the live births during the same period, matched on area of residence, gender and age. Result: The factors found ...

The Zavanelli maneuver is an obstetric maneuver that involves pushing back the delivered fetal head into the birth canal in anticipation of performing a cesarean section in cases of shoulder dystocia. The Zavanelli maneuver is performed only after other maneuvers have failed, as it is associated with high risk to both the mother and the fetus. A review published in 1985 found that 84 of 92 cases of Zavanelli maneuver were successful in replacing the head of the fetus back into the uterus. Risks of the maneuver to the mother include soft tissue damage and sepsis. The Zavanelli maneuver is not performed very often in the United States.

Maryanns mother had no complications during her pregnancy until it was time to deliver. Maryann wasnt in the correct birth position. The physicians were unable to perform a cesarean section and, as a result, Maryann sustained a brachial plexus injury during the process of her delivery. The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that originate in the neck region and branch off to form most of the other nerves that control movement and sensation in the upper limbs. As a result of her injury, Maryann was left with a motionless right arm and would endure great pain, both physically and emotionally. "I had a very beautiful childhood thanks to my parents, who always made me feel good," said Maryann. "But as I grew older, things started changing. It began in fifth grade. Students began to make fun of me. I suffered from jokes, laughter and being compared to an animal. In middle school, they called me dinosaur since I have a shorter right hand." ...

The authors review 118 operative brachial plexus gunshot wounds (GSWs), causing 293 element injuries that were managed over a 30-year period at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC). Retrospective chart reviews were performed. Using the LSUHSC grading system for motor sensory function, each elements grades were combined and averaged.. Most of the 293 injured elements were found to have gross continuity at operation and of 202 elements with complete neurological loss, only 16 (8%) exhibited total disruption. Of 293 injuries, 128 elements with complete or incomplete loss were not only in continuity when explored but also had positive intraoperative nerve action potentials (NAPs). After neurolysis, 120 of 128 elements in continuity (94%) improved to greater than or equal to Grade 3 function. Elements not regenerating early usually required repair. One hundred fifty-six of 202 completely or incompletely injured elements (77%) required resection and suture or ...
