Abstract

Since 1963, 25 patients have undergone Sever-L’Episcopo transfers for obstetrical birth palsy at the St. Louis Unit of the Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children. A follow-up of 2-6 years was possible with a retrospective review of 16 patients. Substantial improvement in shoulder external rotation as well as subjective functional improvement was obtained by all patients. Three transient and one permanent axillary nerve palsies resulting from this procedure are reported.
