Restoration of hand function in C7-T1 brachial plexus palsies using a staged approach with nerve and tendon transfer.

Abstract

Brachial plexus palsies of C7-T1 result in the complete loss of hand function, including finger and thumb flexion and extension as well as intrinsic muscle function. The task of reanimating such a hand remains challenging, and so far there has been no reliable neurological reconstructive method for restoring hand function. The authors aimed to establish a… (More)
