OBJECT Medial pectoral nerve (MPN) to musculocutaneous nerve (MCN) neurotization for recovery of elbow flexion by biceps reinnervation is a valid option following traumatic injury to the upper brachial plexus. A major criticism of the application of this technique in infants is the smaller size of the MPN and mismatch of viable axons. We describe our(More)
Eighteen cases of cerebral tumour composed partly or totally of primitive embryonal cells are reported. These lesions comprise 2.8% of all primary cerebral hemisphere tumours in the histopathology files of The Royal Marsden Hospital between 1971 and 1980 inclusive. Most exhibited some degree of differentiation towards neuronal or glial elements and, as more(More)
OBJECT Axillary nerve palsy, isolated or as part of a more complex brachial plexus injury, can have profound effects on upper-extremity function. Radial to axillary nerve neurotization is a useful technique for regaining shoulder abduction with little compromise of other neurological function. A combined experience of this procedure used in children is(More)
This study aimed to investigate the functional outcomes of infants who underwent neurotization for shoulder abduction and elbow flexion in Narakas grade 1 birth-related brachial plexus palsy (BRBPP) and compare this cohort to children who progressed past the point of needing intervention. A cohort study was conducted at a single center between 1999 and(More)
Lymphatic malformations that involve the nervous system are uncommon. The authors review their experience with involvement of the brachial plexus and its branches by cystic hygromas. A retrospective review of the authors' experience with pathology of the pediatric brachial plexus revealed 4 cases involving patients with compression of this structure and its(More)
