OBJECT The authors report various techniques, and their results, after performing median and ulnar nerve transfers to reanimate the biceps muscle in C5-7 avulsion-related brachial plexus injuries (BPIs). METHODS Forty-three adult patients with BPIs of the upper-middle plexus underwent reinnervation of the biceps muscle; neurotization of the musculocutaneous nerve was performed using fascicles from the ulnar nerve (39 cases) and the median nerve (four cases). The different techniques included… CONTINUE READING
