PPBN can be diagnosed without special tests or studies. The pediatrician can usually make the diagnosis after the baby is born. The main signs are weakness of the arm, usually held at the side with no ability to bend the elbow (Figure 1). Referral to a specialist is recommended. The physician will check that the infant can move his or her arm and fingers and check the range of motion of the joints. Subsequent evaluations are important to see if there is improvement and the nerves are recovering.

Doctors may order an x-ray to look for a fracture of the collarbone or arm bone. Sometimes special tests are ordered to evaluate nerve function, but these are not always necessary. When the infant’s shoulder does not move normally, imaging studies such as ultrasound or MRI may be ordered.

The doctor may recommend surgery to try to rebuild the affected nerves if they do not recover in the first 3-6 months. Surgery may improve arm function. It is important to know that even with reconstruction surgery, the arm will not function normally. Brachial plexus surgery may involve removal of scar tissue and/or reconstruction using working (healthy) nerves, replacing non-functioning (affected) nerves.

Mumps is an acute, contagious, systemic viral disease caused by a paramyxovirus. It is spread by droplets or saliva, and probably enters through the nose and mouth. After an incubation period of 12 to 24 days, headache, anorexia, malaise and low-grade fever usually develop. Other symptoms then appear over the next few days. Of these symptoms, edema of which of the following structures is most likely to peak on the second day and usually lasts 5 to 7 days?

Medical malpractice, a type of medical malpractice, is defined as any failure of a medical professional to exercise prudent and reasonable medical judgment in providing care that deviates from accepted medical standards and causes injury to a patient.

In some cases, the cause of a birth injury can be traced to medical malpractice that occurred during a woman’s pregnancy. For example, failure to properly diagnose and treat maternal or fetal health conditions or complications that may increase the risk of birth injury. Doctors have a duty to discuss prenatal issues such as:

The brachial plexus is made up of up to five nerves that run from the spinal cord in the neck into the arms. These fibers separate to form all the nerves that allow movement and sensation in the hand, forearm and shoulder. These are responsible for the general movements of the biceps to the nimble manipulation and supersensitivity of the fingertips.

Our team can treat all types of IPB and includes a neurosurgeon, hand surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, radiologists and a dedicated pediatric occupational therapist. Together, we evaluate cases from every angle, from the beginning, to focus on the best long-term strategy. We customize care to help each patient achieve maximum strength, sensation and range of motion in the shoulder, arm and hand.

Where the nerve has been stretched or slightly compressed, but is still attached and in communication with the spinal cord. Also known as neuropraxia, stretch injury often repairs itself over time.
