Thirty-six patients with avulsions of upper roots of the brachial plexus underwent transfer of a single fascicle from the ulnar nerve to the proximal motor branch of the biceps muscle to restore elbow flexion. The mean period of follow-up was 22 months. The average reinnervation time for the biceps muscle was 3.3 months. Thirty-four patients achieved biceps(More)
Five male patients with avulsions of the C5 and C6 roots of the brachial plexus underwent transfer of one fascicle of the median nerve to the motor branch of the biceps muscle. The mean period of follow-up was 32 months. The average reinnervation time of the biceps was 3.4 months. Four patients achieved biceps strength of Medical Research Council (MRC)(More)
Twenty patients with brachial plexus injury have been treated with one fascicle nerve transfer to the bicipital branch of the musculocutaneous nerve for reconstruction of elbow flexion. The mean distance from the medial epicondyle to the origin of this branch is 17.9 centimeters. The correlation coefficient and test of statistic significance between(More)
BACKGROUND Shoulder abduction is one of the most essential functions in reconstruction of the brachial plexus following injury. In the literature there are few reports on phrenic nerve transfer, especially in relation to restoration of shoulder function. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the clinical effectiveness and safety of phrenic nerve(More)
Twenty-four patients with root avulsion of brachial plexus were treated with the contralateral C7 root transfer. The area of sensory abnormalities was found on the thumb in 20 cases (83.33%), index finger in 14 cases (58.33%), middle finger in 8 cases (33.33%), ring finger in 3 cases (12.5%), little finger in 11 cases (45.83%), on the radial side of forearm(More)
BACKGROUND In brachial plexus injury, elbow flexion is the first priority in reconstruction. Neglected cases need functioning free muscle transplantation that requires the donor nerve to supply the transplanted muscle. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects and results of transferring one fascicle of the ulnar nerve to the transplanted(More)
From 1992 to 1998, 1630 patients with trigger digits were studied. The ratio of female to male patients was 6:1. The average age of the patients was 51.8 years. The thumb was the most frequently involved digit. The index and little fingers were relatively spared. More than two trigger digits in one hand or more than four trigger digits in both hands were(More)
The prospective study was performed in 250 patients with carpal tunnel syndrome. The mean body mass index (BMI) of patients with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome was more than that of patients with unilateral carpal tunnel syndrome (t = 6.84, p < 0.001). There was no statistically significant difference between the mean BMI of patients with right carpal(More)
An island fasciocutaneous flap, based on the longitudinal fascial anastomotic vessels of septocutaneous branches of the posterior interosseous artery which lies along the forearm fascial septum between the extensor carpi ulnaris and the extensor digiti minimi is easier in harvesting and preserving the posterior interosseous artery.
The association of age, sex and the number of sides of carpal tunnel syndrome were studied in 250 patients. The mean age of the patients with bilateral involvement was more than unilateral involvement (t = 2.48, p < 0.05). A statistically significant association was found between age and the number of sides of carpal tunnel syndrome (chi-square = 16.707, p(More)
