Abstract

Brachial plexus injuries result in devastating loss of function for patients and present incredible challenges for peripheral nerve surgeons. Recently, nerve transfers have produced superior results compared with traditional interposition nerve grafts for brachial plexus reconstruction. The authors present a review of current surgical options for treatment of partial and complete adult brachial plexus injuries using nerve transfers.
